Lenten Schedule for St. Patrick’s 2015:

Mission Statement of St. Patrick Catholic Church:

Continuing in the tradition of the founders of St. Patricks, our parish family is dedicated to: Know God through prayer and education; Love God through devotion to the Holy Eucharist; Serve God through hospitality and service to our neighbor.

Lenten Obligations

  • Fasting Ash Wednesday and Good Friday for all who are between 18 59.  On these days one eats only a small amount twice and a slightly larger amount once with no eating between meals.
  • Abstinence from Meat (for all who are 14 and older)on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent.

***Notice there is no upper age limit to meatless Fridays, only for the fast is there an age limit.***

Fasting (suggestions):

  • One Option - The Daniel Fast
  1. No Meat
  2. No Savory Food (includes sweets, junk food, expensive seafood or other delicacies)
  3. No Strong Drink (alcohol & pop, can include coffee and tea). If you need a caffeine fix, then make an       allowance for that and keep the rest of the fast.
  • Another Option Traditional Fast
    • Only eat meat at one meal per day (except Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent – no meat on these days).  Whatever you choose for fasting, I encourage you to make it a real, but doable challenge.
  • Another option Electronic Fast
    • Fast from television, the internet, or smart phones, iPads, iPod, etc.

Make St. Patrick's your Home!

Have you or someone you know been away from church for a while? Have you thought about joining the Catholic Church? RCIA Inquiry Classes for Adults wanting to join the Catholic Church are available at our parish. This first part of the RCIA process doesn't require any commitment; it's merely a time to come and learn what the Catholic Church is about and have your questions answered. If you are a practicing Catholic and would like to sit in on the classes, you are welcome to come join us as well.

Pray about asking a family member that has left the church; maybe there's someone you know who's looking for something good to rely on in this mixed up world today. Sometimes all it takes is to ask them and plant that seed...
