ASH WEDNESDAY/LENT - ONLY DAYS AWAY
If Ash Wednesday/Lent are so close, can Spring be that far behind!! March 5 is Ash Wednesday. There will be 3 opportunities for everyone to receive ashes on that day. There will be a 7:00 am, Liturgical Service in Holy Name Church (this 20 minute service will give those going to work the chance to start off this season in a spiritual way); there will be a 12:00 noon Mass in Holy Name Church, ashes will be distributed during Mass; there will be another Liturgical Service at 6:00 pm in Holy Name Church.
TAKING A BREAK
After 30 years of having Lenten Fish Fries, the Pastor and the committee, decided to “take a break” this year and not have an Ash Wednesday/Lent Fish Fries especially since the weather has not been cooperating. We are in discussion about a mid-Lent dinner. Stay tuned!!
SIX LENTEN REGULATIONS
1. Ash Wednesday is a day of fast and abstinence. The Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence in the United States. 2. Abstinence means refraining from meat. This regulation is for those 14 years of age and older. Fasting means limiting oneself to 1 full meal and 2 lighter meals. This applies to those between the ages of 18 – 59. 3. Those with a medical condition which fasting may be harmful are not obliged to fast, but should perform some other act of charity or penance. 4. Parents are to see to it that minors not bound by the law of fast and abstinence, are educated in the authentic sense of penance and to do acts of penance suitable to their age. 5. Everyone is encouraged to do acts of charity and penance beyond what is prescribed by law. 6. Dispensation from the obligation of abstinence on Fridays of Lent will not be considered unless some serious reason is present. Social events, banquets, wedding rehearsals or receptions, funeral wakes are not considered sufficient reason to request dispensation.
WOMEN'S SPIRITUAL FOCUS GROUP NEWS
Due to increased family obligations, Rowena Lynch will no longer be able to facilitate the Women’s Spiritual Focus Group. However, she did recommend that Rosie Dubyak would be a suitable replacement. Rosie has prayerfully agreed to take over this responsibility for the parishes. Any women wishing to join should just come to the next meeting.
ALTAR SERVERS BEING RECRUITED
We are in the process of recruiting boys and girls to participate in this “special ministry” of our parish. I hope that parents would encourage their children to participate. This ministry is open to any boy or girl, 5th grade and older. You are only asked to serve usually once a month. There will be 2 training sessions and you will start being scheduled after Easter. If interested, call Fr. Dennis.
