Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics.
In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.
For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken, but not to equal a full meal.
The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.

Parents registered in the parish desiring and planning baptism for their child are to contact the office for an appointment with the pastor 3 months prior to your tentative baptism date. Also you may desire to contact the office early in the pregnancy for an appointment with the pastor to begin baptism preparation. Only after this initial meeting with the pastor is a tentative baptism date set.
Volunteers are needed to provide Bread and Soup for Fridays during Lent after Stations of the Cross. Please call the office if interested in helping with this activity.
All who pray the Stations of the Cross are invited to join in eating this meal which complies with the requirements of Friday Lenten fasting.
