If you do not receive a pledge card in the mail or forget to bring it, please use one of the reply envelopes that will be available as you exit church.

While Fridays in Lent normally are a day of abstinence from meat for Catholics, canon law provides an exception for solemnities that fall on a Friday. The Solemnity of St. Joseph on March 19 will be on a Friday this year; therefore, Catholics are not obligated to maintain the usual Lenten abstinence on Friday, March 19, 2021. Canon 1251 notes, “Abstinence from meat, or from some other food as determined by the Episcopal Conference, is to be observed on all Fridays, unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday. Abstinence and fasting are to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday."

Fr. Slawomir Ptak
