Lent & Easter Guidelines
Lenten and Easter Guidelines, 2014
Lent and Easter are times for fasting and abstinence. Fasting is a day in which only one full meal is allowed; abstinence denotes a time in which no meat is consumed. Fasting is to be practiced by all those between 18 and 60 years old; abstinence, by those 14 years of age and older. Ash Wednesday, March 5, and Good Friday, April 18, are days of fast and abstinence. All the Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence.
Fasting, almsgiving and prayer are the three traditional disciplines of lent. Catholics should undertake these practices seriously in a spirit of penance and of preparation for baptism or of the renewal of baptism at Easter.
Reminder: Reload Your Kroger Card
Everyone Eats, Right?
Kroger Grocery Card Promotion
Helps Youth Ministry
If you participated in the Kroger Grocery Card Promotion last Fall, thank you for your continued support. Just a gentle reminder to reload your card either at Customer Service or at the register before purchasing your groceries.
If you miss this promotion where each household was given a $5 Kroger card, don't worry. You can still receive your free $5 card by stoping in the church office while supplies last. Once you receive your $5 card, we ask each household to “reload” the card with $250 to spend on groceries or gas. All proceeds for these cards will benefit Youth Ministry.
