February 25, 2017 – Lent
 
“We begin the Holy Season of Lent on March 1st with the observance of ASH WEDNESDAY.  It’s always very inspiring to see our church packed on that day, even though Ash Wednesday is not an official Holy Day of Obligation.  So many people WANT or CHOOSE to make the day, and the season, special with “spiritual activities.”
 
Our Mass schedule on Ash Wednesday is: 6:30am, 8:00am, 10:00am & 7:00pm with the Distribution of Ashes at each Mass.  
 
We also offer an evening Mass at 7:00pm Monday through Thursday of each week of Lent since so many people like to attend daily Mass during Lent.
 
Lent is the perfect time to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  We will have extra times for confession after some of the evening Masses (watch the bulletin for the schedule) and we will once again offer the Reconciliation Weekend (at St. Francis of Assisi) on Friday, March 24th, 6 – 9pm and Saturday, March 25th, 9:00am – 3:00pm.
 
Lent is also the perfect time to make a visit at our Adoration Chapel.  Spend some quiet time with the Lord praying for a deepening of your faith.”
 
“Extra charitable giving is also very appropriate for Lent. Each year our parish participates in Operation Rice Bowl, a special charity of Catholic Relief Services.  Go to: crsricebowl.org for further information.”
