Church Regulations Regarding Fast and Abstinence

Abstinence from meat (beast or fowl) is to be observed by all Catholics fourteen years old and older on Ash Wednesday and on all the Fridays of Lent.  This obligation prohibits the eating of meat, but not eggs, milk products, or condiments of any kind, even though made from animal fat.  Fasting means limiting oneself to one full meal on a given fast day.  Catholics who are eighteen years of age but not yet fifty-nine are obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.  On fast days, two additional smaller meals are permitted if necessary to maintain strength.  However, the two smaller meals together may not equal one full meal.  Moreover, eating solid foods between meals on fast days is not permitted.


Spiritual Fasting During Lent

If you are looking for an opportunity to do something extra in your spiritual life during this Lenten Season, join us in the Church Monday through Friday at 3:00pm as we sing the Divine Mercy to our Lord and Saviour.  It’s a beautiful way to spend some time with Jesus during this Lenten Season.


Mother’s Day Extravaganza

Cemetery Rule Reminder

The death of a loved one is a tragic time in each of our lives and it is understandable that we want to continue to do and feel close to that person once they are gone.  And we try to do this by placing objects such as glass statues, vases, benches, etc.,  at our loved one’s burial site.   While we grieve with you, it is the policy of Blessed Sacrament to deter the placement of such items in our cemetery.  It is a maintenance nightmare and a hazard for our cleanup crew.  We ask that you please limit your gestures to your loved ones with flowers placed out of the path of a lawnmower.  All glass, benches and items prohibited by the Cemetery Committee will be removed at the discretion of the committee.  We thank you for your cooperation.    –Father Gregory

The Healing Rosary –The Litany of our Blessed Mother, and the Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, is being recited every Sunday evening beginning at 5:00 pm in the music room at the Faith Formation Building. Don’t take this journey alone.  Many of us are burdened with physical ailments, trials causing us mental anguish.  Why not seek the comfort and the peace of joining others who are facing their own storms.  Led by a group that has devoted their time and talent to pray with those who feel hopeless in their situations, this ministry has brought together countless individuals, all with the same desire.  To seek the calming peace that prayer can bring to someone even in the presence of despair and hopelessness. Pray for yourself, pray for another.
