Ash Wednesday, February 26

PREPARATION FOR LENT

Ash Wednesday (February 26) and Good Friday  (April 10) are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. The norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18-59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon those from age 14 onwards. In all cases common sense should prevail. Pregnant or nursing women and people who are sick should not jeopardize their health by fasting.

Annual Diocesan Appeal

2020 ANNUAL DIOCESAN APPEAL: BUILDING OUR FAMILY OF FAITH

In honor of this landmark year for our Diocese, Bishop Knestout has announced a special Bicentennial Challenge to raise $5 million through this year’s Annual Appeal. Reaching this challenge will allow the Diocese to fund three key priorities: the education of our youth, care for our elderly poor and support for our mission parishes. In addition, this success will flow back to all parishes and provide significant boosts to all the ministries supported by the Appeal. It is with these goals in mind that we hope all our parishioners will join with us this year in making a generous pledge to the Appeal to help us launch our Diocese into the next 200 years.
