CELEBRATION OF THE STATIONS OF THE CROSS

SUNDAYS - Each Sunday at 10:45a.m. during Lent we will conduct a 15 minute "Stations of the Cross" prayer service in the church. Station programs are available for personal use at any time.

FRIDAYS - Each Friday at 7:00p.m. during Lent we will celebrate the Passion of our Lord Jesus through our collective prayer and scriptural reflections on the 14 Stations of the Cross.

Rules for Fasting and Abstinence

The rule for fasting obliges all those from ages 18 through 59 to refrain from eating between meals and to limit their eating to one full meal and two lighter meals for the day (except for medical reasons) on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. However all Catholics ages 18 - 59 are encouraged to Fast on all weekdays of Lent (Sundays provide an exception to a Strict Fast).

The rules for abstinence obliges those 14 years of age and older not to eat meat. In the United States, all Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence from meat.

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of both fasting and abstinence from meat.
