Mark it on your calendar. The two Lenten days of fasting are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Those who are 18 years old through 59 years old are required to fast.
On a day of fasting, one full meal is allowed. Two other meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but together they should not equal the other full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted, but liquids, including milk and juices, are permitted.
Fridays in Lent
On the Fridays of Lent all Catholics 14 years and older are required to abstain from meat.
Stations of the Cross & Soup Suppers
On Fridays during Lent:
Our Lady of the Olympics - (Stations only) 5:30 p.m.
St. Mary/OLGH - Stations 5:30 p.m., Soup Supper 6:00 p.m.
St. Jerome - Stations 5:30 p.m., Soup Supper 6:00 p.m.
St. Paul - Stations 6:00 p.m., Soup Supper 6:30 p.m.
Please note that this year all of the Stations and Soup Suppers for St. Mary and OLGH will be in Aberdeen.
Catholic Relief Services is the official, international, humanitarian agency for the Catholic Church in the United States. Each year they provide us with Rice Bowl containers that we may take home and use to hold our donations for the poor during the 40 days of Lent. Our Rice Bowl donations are then collected in the Holy Thursday Mass as part of the Church's worldwide, Lenten offering for the poor. Please take a Rice Bowl home, place your offerings for the poor in them, and return them in the collection on Holy Thursday or Easter Sunday.
