  • Due to Covid protocols, the ability to have a public Mass largely depends on whether we have enough supplies and volunteers.

    • We need a minimum of 4 volunteers per Mass

  • Our Covid protocols include both Archdiocesan and CDC guidelines. With these protocols in place, we can seat between 75-100 people depending on family sizes.

Fasting & Abstinence

Catholics are obligated to fast (age 18-59) and abstain (age 14 & up) on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Also, Catholics are obligated to abstain (from meat) on all Fridays throughout Lent. Fasting consists of eating one full meal, as well as two smaller meals (but together not equal to one full meal). Also, if possible (not obligatory), the fast and abstinence of Good Friday may be extended to the following day (to the time of the Easter Vigil).

Exception--Friday, March 19th: This day marks the Solemnity of St. Joseph. All solemnities, regardless of what day of the week, are not days of abstinence.
