Free Daily Lenten Resourses
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has many free Lenten resources - visit their website at http://www.usccb.org/prayer-and-worship/liturgical-resources/lent/.
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.
Please bring your Rice Bowl contributions to the Holy Thursday Mass on April 17, at 6:00 p.m., at Saint Mary. There will be ushers and collection receptacles near the doors of the Church to collect your Rice Bowl offerings. These Lenten sacrificial contributions are greatly appreciated and will be forwarded to Catholic Relief Services to assist the poor facing hardships and the lack of food around the world. Also, if you want credit for the donation make sure you put your name and parish on the box.
