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.

Master Planning News

MPHM has asked HTK Architects to help guide us through a Master Planning Process. We will be evaluating all of our facilities and the parish grounds as well as asking parishioners and parish employees for input. We have had one town hall meeting and are in the process of talking to parishioners through already scheduled meetings and events. A survey is being developed that we will get out to parishioners through the bulletin and FlockNote.
