Fasting

1.   All are encouraged to sacrifice something in your lives that prevents you from     growing closer to God.

2.   What activity can you fast from such as TV, time on the internet, playing video

      games, etc. that would give you additional time for prayer and charitable works.

3.   If you are giving up alcohol for Lent and feel you or a loved one has a problem with drugs and/or alcohol, there is a meeting                every other Monday evening at 7:30 P.M. in the Rectory.  All are welcome.

4.   Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of Fast and Abstinence from meat. We are called to abstain from meat on Fridays in             Lent.

Alms Giving

1.      “40 Cans in 40 Days” sponsored by the Knights of Columbus.  Each family is asked to donate one can of food each day during Lent.  The food will be collected and taken to the Community Action Food Bank by the Knights. 

2.      Operation Rice Bowl – containers are available throughout the Church so that each family can set aside money saved from fasting to be donated to the poor.
