The Season of Lent
Fast and Abstinence

All Catholics who have reached their 14th year are bound to abstain entirely from meat on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent. All Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 inclusive are also bound to observe the law of fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. This means limiting oneself to a single full meal and avoiding food between meals. Two other light meals, which together do not equal a full meal, may be taken during the day.

Please carefully choose what you will sacrifice for Lent and what ever it is, do it with a generous and joyful heart. It's our way of saying we are sorry for our sins and that we understand and appreciate the sacrifices Christ endured for love of us. Like everything this side of heaven, we'll only get out of Lent what we put into it.

Jesus Died on the Cross for us

Have you thought about what your pledge or donation to the Catholic Ministries Appeal will be?  Any pledge or donation will be most appreciated.  Our parish goal this year is $32,800.00. The number of families that donate to the Catholic Ministries Appeal is important to the Diocese and the Parish. To date, only 120 parishioners have contributed. You may pick up your personal CMA donation pledge envelope in the parish office during the week or pick up a blank CMA pledge envelope in the rear of the church.
You may place your pledge card/envelope in the weekly collection, or mail it directly to the CMA office in Rockville Center.
