Welcome to Lent
Fast and Abstain
A reminder that all Catholics are required to fast (cut down on what you eat & drink) and abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday. Water and medications are always allowed. The rules of fasting & abstaining do not bind the sick.
Stations of the Cross
Every Friday During Lent, 7:00 p.m.
Saturday Mornings – 9:30 a.m.
Saturday Afternoons – 3:30 to 4:14 p.m.
Friday Evenings – Immediately following Stations of the Cross
The Catholic Church sees every Friday as a day of penance. United with the cross of Jesus we die to self. The rule to abstain from meat on Friday still stands, although the bishops of Canada allow us to substitute another penance of equal value. How do you mark the penitential spirit of Friday in your life? In your family?
Lenten Chapel Visits
Consider making a daily visit to the St. Clement Adoration Chapel as part of your Lenten practice. Spend a few minutes in the presence of Jesus, or better yet, volunteer for a regular hour of adoration each week.
