Our mission, centered in the Eucharist, is to love God and His people, and to extend His love to others through service and prayer.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday. Two Masses are available at 8:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. A day of Fast and Abstinence. Abstinence from meat is observed on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all the Fridays of Lent by all Catholics 14 years and older. Fasting is observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by all Catholics who are 18 years of age but not yet 59. Only one full meal is allowed. Two smaller meals are permitted as necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted.
