LENT 2018 “AT A GLANCE”

IN ADDITION to the Lenten schedule that was mailed to all parish families / households, we offer the following summary of Lenten activities here at Corpus Christi Parish during Lent 2018 for all members and friends of our parish:

ASH WEDNESDAY - February 14 Masses will be celebrated at 8:00 AM (with School children), 12:00 Noon and 6:00 PM. Ashes will be blessed and distributed during all three Masses. Confessions will be heard after all three Masses on Ash Wednesday. (Note: no 6:30 AM Mass on Ash Wednesday.)

CONFESSIONS The Season of Lent calls us to a spirit of repentance, reconciliation, and renewal. Nowhere is this more beautifully expressed than in the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Consider going to Confession early in Lent and not waiting until just before Easter to benefit from the spiritual graces of this special Sacrament. During Lent, Confessions will be heard: on Ash Wednesday (after all three Masses), on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:00 PM, on Saturdays at 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM, and on Sundays following the 5:00 PM Lenten Vespers Service. Of course, Confessions can be heard any time by appointment or request.

“THE LIGHT IS ON FOR YOU!” – Wednesday, February 28 As part of our diocese’s response to the United States Bishops’ call for a renewed appreciation and celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, all parishes of our diocese will provide the opportunity for Confession from 6:00–8:00 PM on Wednesday, February 28. Priests will be available that evening all across the diocese. Father Daryl will be in the Reconciliation Room during that time. Stop by!

LENTEN PENANCE SERVICE In addition to the scheduled times for Confession listed above, our parish will hold a Lenten Penance Service at 3:00 PM on Sunday, March 18. Several priests will be available for individual Confession following a short service. Take advantage of this opportunity. Bring your family!

LENTEN EVENING PRAYER (Vespers) Join us at 5:00 PM each Sunday of Lent for Evening Prayer (Vespers). In addition to praying the “official” prayer of the Church, each week we will have the opportunity for a Lenten meditation to carry us through the week ahead.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS One of the more popular and traditional Catholic devotions, especially during the Season of Lent, is the meditation on the Stations of the Cross. This devotion will be prayed each week of Lent as follows:
     Mondays: 2:15 PM (with our school children) Fridays: 7:00 PM (with Benediction)

LENTEN SOUP SUPPERS Our Altar and Rosary Society invites you to join in a simple Lenten Soup Supper in the Peterson Room beginning at 5:30 PM on Friday, February 16, prior to the weekly Stations of the Cross and Benediction. Come and enjoy Lenten fellowship with other parish members. A freewill offering will be accepted. (Please note that this will be the only Lenten Soup Supper this year.)

LENTEN SCRIPTURE STUDY One aspect of the call to conversion is to open our hearts and minds to the Word of God as the Lord speaks to us in the Sacred Scriptures. Father Daryl will conduct a six-week study on the Gospel of Saint Mark (the Gospel being read during the current Church year) as well as the three Letters of Saint John on Sundays – February 18 and 25, and March 4, 11, 18, and 25 – from 1:00–2:30 PM in the parish meeting center on the lower parking lot level. Bring your Bible! Bring a friend! Everyone is welcome! No registration is necessary!

GUIDELINES FOR FASTING AND ABSTAINING FROM MEAT The time-honored tradition of fasting and abstaining from meat is to be maintained during the Season of Lent, according to the following guidelines:
Fasting: All Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast (eat only one full meal; no snacking) on Ash Wednesday (February 14) and Good Friday (March 30). Fasting at other times or by those not obligated to do so is always encouraged.
Abstaining: All Catholics age 14 and older are obligated to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday (February 14) and on all Fridays of Lent, including Good Friday (March 30). Abstinence from meat or from other foods on other days of Lent, on all Fridays of the year, and at other times, or by those not obligated to do so, is always encouraged as a traditional sign of repentance and renewal.

PARISH LENTEN FISH FRY Our annual parish Original Jonah Fish Fry will be served on Friday, March 2, from 4:00–7:00 PM. Adults & Carry-outs: $10.00; Children (6–12): $4.00; under six, free. Advance sale Adult and Carry-out tickets: $9.00. Advance tickets will be on sale after all Masses the weekend of February 24-25, as well as from the parish office before Thursday, March 1.

LENTEN ALMSGIVING / STEWARDSHIP OF TREASURE During the Season of Lent, there are many “formal” means of almsgiving provided by the Church. All parish families / households are invited to participate in Operation Rice Bowl, the Lenten almsgiving program that benefits Catholic Relief Services. On Ash Wednesday (February 14), we take up the annual collection for the Church in Central and Eastern Europe. On the First Sunday of Lent (February 18), the annual collection for Black and Native American Missions will be taken up. On the Fourth Sunday of Lent (March 11), we are asked to support the annual collection for the Catholic Relief Services. Finally, our Community Service Committee takes up its monthly “Soup Pot” collection February 24-25 and March 24-25. Please be generous in your support of these special Lenten appeals, as well as your regular and ongoing parish stewardship and support of other charitable causes.

R.C.I.A. NOTES: We celebrate the Rite of Enrollment for Catechumen, Marie Yarbrough, during the 5:00 PM Mass on February 10, and the First, Second, and Third Scrutinies during the 8:00 AM Mass March 4, the 5:00 PM Mass March 10, and the 10:30 AM Mass March 18. Please keep Marie and all Catechumens and Candidates in your prayers during this Lenten season.
