ASH WEDNESDAY & LENT -- ALL PROGRAMS & EVENTS CANCELLED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE (as of 3/13/20)

We begin the season of Lent this week on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 26th.  We will have Masses at 8:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m. for school, 12:15 noon and 5:30 p.m. at the end of which ashes will be distributed.  Remember that Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fast and abstinence, while the other Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence from meat, a sacrifice to commemorate the Lord’s passion.  The precept for abstinence binds those 14 years of age and older while the precept for fasting binds those from 18 years of age to 59, unless there are health considerations.                   

We will host the traditional soup suppers at 6:00 p.m. and the Lenten Stations of the Cross each Friday beginning with a meditation at 7:00 p.m.  The parish mission will begin March 9th beginning at 7:00 p.m. for three evenings through the 11th, presented by Fr. Thomas P. Voorhies, pastor of Sacred Heart Church in Ville Platte, Louisiana.

SACRED HEART CHURCH [VILLE PLATTE, LA]

                    Our Lenten Mission offers us the opportunity gain a fresh perspective on our baptismal                     call to holiness as we journey through “these forty days” of Lent.  Although Lent is considered a “penitential season” in the Church Year, it is really a time for renewal: of heart, mind, and spirit as we turn – or return – and follow more closely the way of Jesus Christ.

OF THE CROSS
                      Lenten Fridays:  7:00 PM
On Lenten Friday, you are invited to a series of Lenten Reflections followed by Stations of the Cross.  Make time during this season of renewal for a moment of reflection on Jesus’ final walk to Calvary and the true meaning of the glory of the cross.  The Stations of the Cross, a devotion started by St. Francis of Assisi, can help us enter into the mystery of Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection.
