Based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church
Mondays: Feb. 25, Mar. 4, Mar. 11 and Mar. 18

It’s one thing to pray the Creed every Sunday in Church, but how do those words affect us from Monday through Saturday? Pope Benedict has proclaimed 2013 as a year of faith. Come, join us; and explore what this means in our everyday lives. .
Topics include: Professing Faith—What Am I Saying;
Celebrating Faith through Sacramental Living;
Foundations of Morality—Living a Christ-like Life; and
Prayer—the Thread that Holds Us Together.
Please call Sr. Mary Beth in the Rectory Office for further information or to reserve a seat.

Fast and Abstinence and other Acts of Penance for Lent
We approach a season dedicated to acts of penance. The Bishops of the United States prescribe, as minimal obligation, that all persons over fourteen years of age are gravely obliged to ABSTAIN from meat on ASH
WEDNESDAY and ALL FRIDAYS OF LENT. All persons over eighteen years of age and up to the beginning of their sixtieth year are gravely obliged to FAST by limiting themselves to a SINGLE full meal on ASH WEDNESDAY and GOOD FRIDAY.
