 This year, Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent,fell on February 18, 2015.  You are reminded of the Church's laws for fast and abstinence during Lent.

“On these days (of penance), the faithful are in a special manner to devote themselves to prayer, to engage in works of piety and charity, to deny themselves by fulfilling their obligations more faithfully ..”  The New Code of Canon Law


Ash Wednesday and Good Friday  are days of fasting.  Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are permitted one full meal and two lesser meals per day (which together should not equal one full meal), with no eating between meals. 



Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent  are days of abstinence.  Catholics who are 14 years or older should abstain from meat entirely.  Soups and gravies made from meat are permitted. 






Friday, February 27th

 Sunday, Feb. 22nd – We have a meeting the Youth Room of the Family Life Center beginning at 6pm and closing at 8pm.  The focus of this meeting is preparing for our Stations  of the Cross performance on Good Friday.  Roles and costumes will be finalized.  Please make sure you mark your calendar for this event.

Dude Ranch Retreat, Feb. 27th – March 1st – This retreat is an all-time favorite of our group.  We head to Lake Wales, FL to the Westgate River Ranch for a weekend of spirit filled speakers, music and great experiences with our friends.





It is that time of the year.  It is Lent. The HOLY NAME SOCIETY and MOSH are sponsoring a fish fry every Friday during lent season and that includes carnival Friday. 


Bring your friends and family by the New Parish Center and, not only, enjoy the meal, but also the fellowship. The Fish Fry will be held every Friday starting February 20th, and ending March 27th, 2015. Good Friday, April 3rd, 2015 is a day of fasting.


We are asking a Donation of $7.00 per person. The proceeds benefit the New Parish Center and the school. Come join us. 






Does your child like to sing or play an instrument? If so – we’d love to have them participate with the music liturgy at the 11:30 am Sunday mass. We rehearse at 11:00 in the choir room – immediately before mass.  We’d love to have your children (1st grade and up!) participate in this vital ministry!  Please call Kathy Lynch @ 613-8157
