Regulations For Lent and Easter Triduum

The regulations for Lent and Easter Triduum follow:

 Lent is the principal season of penance in the Christian Year. Priests, religious and laity are strongly urged to develop and follow a program of voluntary self-denial, attentiveness to prayer, and especially to works of charity and mercy.

 Everyone 14 years of age or over is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, February 18, 2015 and all the Fridays of Lent.

 Everyone 18 years of age and under 59 years of age is bound to fast on Ash Wednesday, February 18, 2015, and Good Friday, April 3, 2015.

 On these two days of fast and abstinence, Ash Wednesday and 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. Eating between meals is not permitted on these two days, but liquids including milk and fruit juices are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige.

 To disregard completely the law of fast and abstinence is a serious matter.

March for Life brings over 700,000 people together to speak for all life! All Life is a Gift!

The March For Life was a huge success!! With over 700,000 people in attendance, it has been recognized as one of the largest groups to come together for the March for Life.

Every year people from all over the nation come together in Washington, D.C. to march in solidarity for the right to life and the dignity of all human life. The March processes down Constitution Street and ends in front of the Supreme Court building.

Many students from The High School of Saint Thomas More participated and marched down Constitution Street in D.C. in union with other Pro-life supporters and in defense of the dignity of all human life.

Keep all those who marched as well as those whose lives are in danger of termination in your prayers today and pray that we will someday see the day when the March for Life is no longer needed.

Praise God for all human life!!!
