following practices of prayer, fasting and almsgiving as
ways to repent of your wrongdoings and honor the passion,
death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
|Fasting and Abstinence
|Adults who are 18-59 years old and in
good health are to fast and abstain from eating meat on Ash
Wednesday and Good Friday. Fasting consists of eating one full
meal and two smaller meals that don’t add up to a single full meal.
All Catholics who are 14 years and older are to abstain from
eating meat on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays in Lent.
|Lenten Reflection Books
|Reflect daily on the Scripture readings
and other traditions of Lent using the books that are available in
the vestibule of church.
|Operation Rice Bowl
|Learn about our disadvantaged brothers
and sisters around the world, and pray, fast and give alms to
improve their lives with Catholic Relief Services Operation Rice
Bowl. Pick up a calendar of reflections, recipes and activities along
with a box in which to put your donations. Each week, bring the box
to Mass and add your donation to the bowl after Communion.
|Soup and Stations
|Join fellow parishioners each Friday in Lent for
a communal meal and time-honored prayer ritual. Soup and bread
are served at 6:30pm in the lunch room; Stations of the Cross are
prayed in church at 7:30pm. This Friday, March 8, the SCL Parent
Club and 8th graders from our school will provide soup and lead
|Sacrament of Reconciliation
|Join parishioners from all four
parishes in our grouping at St. Norbert on Tuesday, March 19 for
