Lent

The Lenten season is a journey of prayer, fasting, abstinence and sharing with those in need. In the Church, we cover our statues during Lent to alert us of the special time we are entering. When we
walk into church and notice everything is covered, we immediately know something is different and that this season is unlike all others throughout the year.

We encourage all parishioners to adhere to the Lenten regulations of abstinence, fasting, and almsgiving by abstaining from meat on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent, fasting from behaviors that don’t serve us or God, and sharing our blessings with those less fortunate. To remind us of these goals, we suspend our Hospitality program after 10 am Masses.
 
In addition, we choose a parish-wide Almsgiving recipient. Past giving has included distributing fast food gift cards to needy people we encounter on the streets; St. Ann’s Mission; and Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos.
