LITURGICAL TRIBUTE FUND
One of the most important things that we do when someone close to us dies is to honor their memory. As a way to
do that, we have started the Saint John of the Cross liturgical Tribute Fund. All money that is donated to this fund in
memory of a love one or friend will be used to purchase items utilized in our worship and help us to do all that we
can to assure that we have what we need to worship well.

LENTEN REGULATIONS REGARDING FASTING AND ABSTINENCE:
Our observance of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 18th, a day of
fast and abstinence for Catholics. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are
obligatory days of universal fast and abstinence. Fasting is obligatory for all
who have completed their 18th year and have not yet reached their 60th year.
Fasting allows a person to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may be taken,
not to equal one full meal. Abstinence (from meat) is obligatory for all who have
reached their 14th year. If possible, the fast on Good Friday is continued until
the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday night) as the “paschal fast” to honor the
suffering and death of the Lord Jesus, and to prepare ourselves to share more
fully and to celebrate more readily his Resurrection. Fridays in Lent are
obligatory days of complete abstinence (from meat) for all who have
completed their 14th year
We would like to invite you to visit the prayer table in the Gathering Area where you can write a prayer request on a
stone. At all of the weekend Masses during Lent there will be a special intention to pray for all the requests written in
stone. After Lent the stones will be spread out in the gardens around the church grounds.
