 April 13,  2014   Palm Sunday 
Palm Sunday begins the beautiful and inspiring time of Holy Week.  Plan to join us for Mass this weekend as we agan encounter the Passion of Chirst and receive take blessed palm for use in your home.
Wednesday evening we offer the ancient, monastic prayer service called "tenebrae," meaning shadows or darkness.  The themes of darkness and light are interwoven throughout the prayer service at 7:00pm. 
The Sacred Triduum (three days) begins with our Holy Thursday Mass at 7:00pm as we celebrate the institution of the Holy Eucharist and Holy Priesthood.  The reenactment of the "washing of the feet" is very inspiring.  On Good Friday we have the "living" stations of the cross at 1:00pm with the help of our 8th graders.  The Good Friday service, including the kissing/veneration of the cross begins at 7:00pm.  Holy Saturday, the Easter Vigil, begins at 8:00pm with the new fire and Easter Candle and we welcome the RCIA candidates to the Catholic Church.

Lenten Regulations

Ash Wednesday (March 5) and Good Friday (April 18) are days of abstinence for all Catholics over the age of 14. Fast as well as abstinence is also obligatory for those from the ages of 18-59.

Abstinence means abstinence from meat. Fast means one full meal a day, with two smaller meals and nothing between meals (liquids are permitted). No Catholic will lightly excuse himself or herself from this obligation. All other Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence from meat.
