abstinence during Lent.
Good Friday is a day of fasting. Catholics between the ages of

day (which together should not equal one full meal), with no
eating between meals.
All Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence. Catholics who
are 14 years or older should abstain from meat entirely. Soups
and gravies made from meat are permitted. Please refer to your
flyer “Keeping a Holy Lent” for more information of activities for

“Our Lord calls us to imitate him more perfectly by witnessing to the
inherent dignity of every human being, including those whose actions
have been despicable. …we are called to oppose the culture of death by
witnessing to something greater and more perfect: a gospel of life, hope
and mercy.” — “Life Matters
Help Save Lives
Here is a great idea for a Lenten Sacrifice that will save lives. The
Respect Life Committee urges all parishioners to offer a Spiritual Bouquet
for the Unborn. Please fill out a card on the vestibule committing to the
sacrifice/s of your choice during Lent. Some options are offering Masses,
fasting, praying rosaries, making a Holy Hour of Adoration or a monetary
donation. Please tear off the ticket at the bottom of the card to keep for
yourself as a reminder of your sacrifice and put the other part of the card
in the St. Gerard Donation Basket.
PEACEFUL PRAYER March 26th, Fr. Kiran, along with the
Respect Life Committee would like to invite all to join us in peaceful

abortion clinic offers hope to women and clinic workers and recognizes
the humanity of these children who are perishing. For more information or
