MASS and WAY of the CROSS, EUCHARISTIC ADORATION, CONFESSIONS             

On the Friday afternoons of Lent we will have the Way of the Cross beginning at 5:00pm followed immediately by Holy Mass.            Please remember also, that Eucharistic Adoration is every Thursday afternoon from 3-5pm.  During Eucharistic Adoration, I hear confessions from 3:15pm-3:45pm.  Confessions are regularly scheduled on Saturday afternoons from 3pm-4pm.     
     Holy Mass, the Way of the Cross, Eucharistic Adoration, Confession, fasting, abstinence & almsgiving are excellent ways to prepare our souls to celebrate the Lord’s resurrection at Easter.                            

Fish Fry:  Our Lenten Fish Fry is held on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent, including Good Friday, from 4pm-7pm in Heritage Hall (under the church).  Dine in, drive-thru or carry out.  See the insert in this bulletin.  

New gates at St.Lawrence:  Perhaps you noticed the tall black posts at the entrance of the church parking lot.  We are installing gates at the parking lot entrances on Warsaw and on Carson behind school.  We will also be installing gates by the pony track (the steps between the church and the rectory).  This will provide added security especially during the overnight hours.  The gates will not hinder normal church and school traffic flow.

LENTEN REGULATIONS              

Ash Wednesday (February 10) and Good Friday (March 25) are days of fast and abstinence.  All other Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence only.  Abstinence means no eating of meat (beast or fowl) and is to be observed by all Catholics 14 years of age and older on Ash Wednesday and on all the Fridays of Lent.             

Fasting means limiting oneself to one full meal on a given fast day.  Catholics who are 18 years of age but not yet 59 are obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.  On fast days, two additional smaller meals are permitted if necessary to maintain strength.  However, two smaller meals together may not equal one full meal.  Moreover, eating solid foods between meals on fast days is not permitted.
