Life-giving God, fill us, that our faith will assure those who are suffering, that their pain will blossom into life.

Strength-giving God, pour into all who care for the sick, the embracing, enduring love of Jesus.

Wednesday 7:45 AM
The holy season of Lent begins on this day. Join us for Mass and Distribution of Ashes.

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.

According to the USCCB, for members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken, but not to equal a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.
