SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION
Lent is a special time to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Priests are available for confession each Saturday afternoon from 4:00 – 4:45 PM in the Chapel or by appointment. Please call the Parish Office at 627-0385 to make an appointment.

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 is 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.
