Robert Stackpole, STD, Director of John Paul II Institute of Divine Mercy, notes that questions about when to go to confession prior to Divine Mercy Sunday are on the minds of many devout Catholics at this time of the year. Please download his answer HERE.
FAST: Everyone age 18 and older and up to his/her 60th year is bound to observe the law of Fast on Good Friday. Only one full meatless meal is allowed; two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one's needs, but together they should not equal another full meal.
ABSTINENCE: Everyone age 14 years and older is bound to observe the law of abstinence. Abstinence from meat and all meat products is to be observed on Good Friday.
Confessions during Holy Week are as follows: Monday, April 10th, 11:30 am-12:00 noon & 6:30-8:00 pm; Tuesday & Wednesday, April 11th & 12th, 6:30-8:00 pm; Good Friday, April 14th, 8:30-11:00 am & 12:00 noon-2:00 pm; and Holy Saturday, April 15th, 9:00-10:00 am.

The two-and-one-half-hour Saturday class includes hands-on instruction, a chance to sit down and eat what students cooked, and a take-home folder of the recipes so participants can cook "saintly" meals at home. Price: $15 per session. Class size limited to 15. Time: 11:00 am to 1:30 pm in the parish hall and kitchen. For information or to register, please email Sandy Greeley at firstname.lastname@example.org or Fernando Flores at email@example.com.
This Friday evening the Adoration Chapel and Food & Faith Apostolates sponsor our Lenten meatless meal in the parish hall at 6:00 pm. We will have confessions beginning at 6:30 pm, and Stations of the Cross at 7:00 pm. The meatless meal menu is Three Sister Stew with corn and flour tortillas for quesadillas (corn tortillas and stew are gluten free), dessert and beverages. Join us for good food, fellowship and a great opportunity for prayer, fasting and almsgiving, the three practices of Lent.
