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:

  • Everyone 14 years of age or over is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent.
  • Everyone 18 years of age and under 59 years of age is bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. (The obligation of fasting ceases with the celebration of one's 59th birthday)
  • On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, only one full meatless meal is allowed. Two other smaller meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one's needs, but together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted on those two days, but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige.
  • Catholics should not lightly excuse themselves from these prescribed minimal penitential practices.

Immaculee Ilibagiza Retreat

We are excited to welcome Immaculée Ilibagiza to Most Pure Heart of Mary Catholic Church for a two-day retreat on August 23 & 24. Come hear Immaculée tell the chilling story of how she survived the 1994 Rwandan Holocaust hidden in a 3X4 bathroom for 91 days with seven other women. This two-day retreat includes Immaculee's witness of the power of prayer, miracles of the rosary, and inspirational music. No one will leave this retreat the same as when they came! Learn more about Immaculée HERE

Novena: Mary, Undoer of Knots

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.
