REMINDER:  All Fridays of the year are days of abstinence from meat but Catholics may substitute special acts of charity or piety on this day.  Christian fasting obtains its full meaning when we deprive ourselves of food in order to be more open to prayer, to the needs of others, and to save money to give to the poor.  Current Church discipline permits one to take a main and two lesser meals which do not equal the main meal.  Mandatory fast days are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, on which days one must abstain from meat and eat only one main meal.  Fridays in Lent are days of abstinence and meat may not be taken on these days.  The law of abstinence from meat binds those who are 14 and older; the law of fasting binds those from 18 to 59 years of age.  Parents are reminded of their duty to introduce children gradually to the understanding and practice of penance.  Adult example will be the greatest influence in this matter.

GOOD FRIDAY COLLECTION  will take place in all the churches of the world in support of the Holy Places in the Holy Land.  This annual Good Friday appeal dates back to 1421 and the pontificate of Pope Martin V, to recognize the grave responsibility Catholics throughout the world have to support Christians in the Holy Land, the birthplace of Christianity, with prayers and material help.  Each year your support sustains apostolic and social works and the upkeep of the Holy Sites we as Catholics hold so dear.  Thank you for your contribution. 

2015 INCOME TAX RECEIPTS are available for pick up after the Masses on Sunday at the main entrance of the Church and at the parish office during weekdays. 
 
2016 CHURCH SUPPORT ENVELOPES are ready to be picked up in the Church hall.  Envelopes are organized numerically.  If your box is not there, or if you are new to the parish and wish to use envelopes, please write your name on the registration form next to the envelope boxes.  Please use current year’s envelopes only to ensure your donations get credited to you.
