SACRAMENT OF PENANCE
Lent is a special time to celebrate the Sacrament of Penance. Priests are available for confessions each Saturday afternoon from 4:00 to 4:45 PM. On the Monday of Holy Week, March 26,
confessions will be heard from 3:00 to 9:00 PM in all the churches in the Diocese of Rockville Centre, the Diocese of Brooklyn, and the Archdiocese of New York.

FAST AND ABSTINENCE – Those who have reached their fourteenth year are bound to abstain entirely from meat on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent. All Catholics between the ages of eighteen and fifty-nine are also bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. This means to limit oneself to a single full meal and avoid food between meals. Two other light meals, which together do not equal a full meal, may be taken during the day.

EUCHARISTIC ADORATION is held every Monday from 3:00 to 8:00 PM in the Chapel off the south side of the Church.
