Sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time

   Healing from sickness and from other maladies has been a sign of God’s love and concern for His people from the outset.  Our human condition, weakened because of sin, becomes sick, weak, afflicted in many ways.  God cares for us and demonstrates this be His healing and forgiveness.  At all times and in all places, never be afraid to turn to the Lord in the most troubling of times, for we will experience joy because of His love and mercy towards us.

   This Wednesday, February 14th, is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the penitential season of Lent and a day of universal fast and abstinence.  Masses with the Blessing and Imposition of Ashes will be held at 8:00 a.m. and 5:30 p.m.  A Liturgy of the Word with the Blessing and Imposition of Ashes will be held at 12:05 p.m.

   A summary for fasting and abstinence is as follows: Abstinence applies to everyone fourteen years of age from the consumption of meat.  Fasting applies to those of age eighteen to fifty-nine years of age, except for reasons of health.  If you have any questions feel free to contact me at the Parish Office.

   The Stations of the Cross will be prayed in the church this Friday and all the Fridays of Lent at 4:00 p.m. 

   Next Sunday, February 18th, the Rite of Sending will be celebrated at the 10:00 a.m. Mass for Mallory Walsh who will be presented that afternoon to Bishop McKnight at the Cathedral for the Rite of Election and the Continuing Call to Conversion.  Mallory will enter Full Communion with the Roman Catholic Church at this year’s Easter Vigil on Saturday evening, March 30th.
