LENTEN  REGULATIONS  2017

March 1, 2017 is Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of the Season of Lent.


ABSTINENCE

All Catholics who have reached their 14th birthday are bound to abstain totally from meat on the following days:  Ash Wednesday, Fridays of Lent, & Good FridayIn accord with Diocesan custom, Bishop LaValley will grant a dispensation from abstinence from meat to those who observe the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day on Friday, March 17th.  It is asked that another penitential act take its place during the Lenten period.

 FASTING

All Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are bound also to observe the Law of Fast on the following days:  Ash Wednesday (March 1) and Good Friday (April 14).  Fasting, that is, eating less, involves limiting oneself to a single full meal and avoiding food between meals.  Lighter nourishment may be taken on two other occasions in the course of the day.

 PRAYER & PENANCE

The entire season of Lent should be observed in a spirit of prayer and penance. Spending extra time in prayer or Bible study, attending daily Mass, voluntary sacrifice and self-denial, combined with works of charity and service to others, are all excellent ways to obey the Lord's command to reform our lives and to prepare for the joyful celebration of Easter. 

SACRAMENT OF PENANCE

Bishop LaValley encourages parishes throughout the Diocese to dedicate the First Friday of April (April 7) to Eucharistic Adoration and the Sacrament of Penance as part of “The Light is on for You” initiative

EASTER DUTY

All Catholics who have reached the age of reason must confess their serious sins in the Sacrament of Penance at least once a year.  They must also receive Holy Communion at least once each year between the First Sunday of Lent (March 5th) and Trinity Sunday (June 11th).

OBLIGATION

All Christ’s faithful are obliged by divine law to do penance.  The days set aside for fast and abstinence in Lent are special ways of doing penance and are an expression of unity for all the Church. 


CHRISM MASS


A reminder that this year’s Chrism Mass will be celebrated on 

Thursday, April 6th

at 11:00 am 

at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Ogdensburg. 

All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
