PENITENTIAL DISCIPLINES OF LENT:
The Christian faithful, during Lent, are clearly conscious of the need to turn the mind towards those realities which really count, which require Gospel commitment and integrity of life which, through self denial of those things which are superfluous, are translated into good works and solidarity with the poor and needy. (Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy, #125)
In addition to choosing their own penitential practices, Catholics are also asked to observe the practices of fast and abstinence during the 40 days of Lent. The Lenten Fast and Abstinence Regulations are as follows:
As part of our cost savings measures in helping to reduce the parish deficit, we are asking for help with snow removal from sidewalks, handicap access ramps and stairs this winter. Please click on this link to sign up for a time period (week long commitment). We truly appreciate the dedication of our parishioners!
As the parish concentrates on the financial matters of the parish, Fr. Greg would like all parishioners to pray the novena to Mary, Undoer of Knots. As we take these matters to prayer, we firmly believe that we will be guided to the solutions needed to keep Most Pure Heart of Mary financially viable for many generations.
