Lenten Notes


            As we recognize that Ash Wednesday is Wednesday, February 14th, we invite you to participate and begin our annual journey with Jesus as we prepare for Easter. I invite you to join us for our Friday liturgies, stations of the cross on Friday afternoon at 2 p.m., and our parish fish fries on Friday evening.

The traditional disciplines of Lent are prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Traditionally, as Catholics, we refrain from eating meat on Friday.  While this does not include all school-aged children, I realize families honor this tradition.  As a result, we will include two non-meat options with our Friday lunches ordered on-line.  These options  are a cheese pizza and vegetarian sandwich, both from Schlotzky’s  Deli.
