ARCHDIOCESAN LENTEN REGULATIONS
Then to all, Christ said,
“Whoever wishes to be my follower must deny his very self, take up his cross each
day, and follow in my steps.” (Luke 9:23)
The Church has always helped us fulfill these words of Jesus by prescribing very
definite penance for all Catholics. Accordingly, the Pope and the American Bishops
have outlined obligatory fast and abstinence as follows:
Ash Wednesday (March 5, 2014) and Good Friday (April 18, 2014) are days of
abstinence for all Catholics over the age of 14. On these two days, fast, as well as
abstinence, is also obligatory for those from the ages of 18-59. Abstinence means
refraining from meat. Fast means one full meal a day, with two smaller meals and
nothing between meals (liquids are permitted). No Catholic will lightly excuse himself
or herself from this obligation.
All Fridays in Lent are days of abstinence from meat. Here again Catholics will not
hold themselves lightly excused, but if there is a serious health problem, this
obligation would not apply.
We should strive to make all days of Lent a time of prayer and penance.
“The Light is ON for You”
“He said to him, ‘My son, you are here with me always; everything I
have is yours. But now we must celebrate and rejoice, because your
brother was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has
been found” ---Luke 15: 31-32
As Lent approaches, Archbishop Robert J. Carlson, Archbishop of
St. Louis, eagerly extends an invitation to all Catholics throughout
the Archdiocese to join “The Light is ON for You” initiative. This
initiative allows all Catholics to avail themselves of the Sacrament of
Archbishop Carlson encourages all Catholics throughout the
Archdiocese to take the opportunity to go to confession in
preparation for Easter, in order that all may “encounter the merciful
love of the Father.”
Confession is a wonderful opportunity to set aside our sinful ways
and to draw closer to our Lord. Confessions will be held on various
dates, times and locations throughout the Archdiocese of St. Louis
from March 21-April 5. Our parish will be taking part in the
Sacrament of Reconciliation on Thursday, March 27 from 7-9 pm.
This will be in addition to a parish Penance Service in Holy Week,
and regular Saturday confessions.

Pray that this Lent will be a time of profound self-examination,
forgiveness and renewal for all.
