      The Season of Lent

       

      Fast and Abstinence

      All Catholics 14 years and old are required to do a penance on every Friday of the year, unless it is a Solemnity. This penance is usually done by abstaining from meat each Friday, but another penance may be substituted. In the season of Lent, Catholics 14 and older must abstain from meat on the Fridays of Lent.
      Additionally, on both Ash Wednesday and Good Friday (April 18), Catholics (18 to 59 years old) are required to observe a fast. The Church also recommends (but does not require) observing the fast on Holy Saturday. The fast means eating only full one meal that day, although medicine and drink are allowed. The fast should not endanger one’s health, and additional food may be taken by those who are sick, as is reasonable

      Bottles for Life

      Heartbeats performed 330 ultrasounds last year. The image helps mothers and fathers to make perhaps the most important decision they may ever have to make. Each one of those images was free to our clients because of the gifts we receive in baby bottles through our churches. The money raised will support the life changing work of meeting the physical and spiritual needs of men and women who find themselves facing an unplanned pregnancy. Help us provide services that will make an eternal impact by filling a baby bottle.

      Just pick up a bottle on March 15 or 16, fill it with change , bills or checks and bring it back to the church on the date below.

      Bottles due back: March 29 & 30
