Lent, Holy Week & Easter



This page will be updated as more information becomes available. Please check back often.

Lent began on Ash Wednesday

February 17, 2021

Lent is a time when Catholics are called to prayer, to fasting, and to almsgiving, which means donating money or goods to the poor, and performing other acts of charity.

As a reminder, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting, and of abstaining from meat. Fasting is defined as eating one full meatless meal, as well as two smaller meals that are not equal to a full meal. Catholics also do not eat meat on the other Fridays in Lent.

Stations of the Cross 
will begin on
Monday, February 22, 2021 at 9:00 AM.
*Stations have been cancelled for Friday, February 19th at 7 P.M., due to the weather.*
Throughout the Lenten season, Stations will be held:
Fridays at 7PM
Mondays at 9AM
Exceptions to this schedule will be listed in the newsletter, and/or posted here.
