Please note to your right—the Mass times for December 8th, Immaculate Conception, is a HOLY DAY of OBLIGATION = have to go to Mass day. And on your calendar for later in the week, also to your right, is the December 11th, Advent Penance / Reconciliation Service at 7 PM. We plan on having 10 Confessors and it should not exceed one hour. Leave when you need to after individual confessions.

To conclude a retreat on Advent Gregorian Chants Mass will be celebrated in Latin--(Novus Ordo)-- @ St. Mary's by Schola Cantus Angelorum.

Message From the Pastor

LENT & ASH WEDNESDAY 2015

Ash Wednesday is February 18: We received from the Archdiocese a reminder about the fasting and abstinence rules. They are below:

All Catholics 14 years and older must abstain from meat on the Fridays of Lent, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. All Catholics between ages 18 and 59 are to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. To fast means to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken for good health but together they should not equal a full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted; however, liquids including coffee, milk and fruit juices are allowed. Please note that we will have the same schedule of Masses that we have for Holy Days so that everyone can participate.

During the Holy Season of Lent, we will have Stations of the Cross and Soup Supper: Stations of the Cross in English beginning at 6 PM; Soup Supper beginning about 6:30 PM; and Stations of the Cross in Spanish beginning at 7 PM. All are invited.

Gratefully, Father Philip Waibel, OSB, Pastor
