      Fortnight For Freedom 2015: Freedom to Bear Witness

      Fortnight for Freedom 2015: Freedom to Bear Witness

       

      This Sunday, the Church in the United States begins its annual Fortnight for Freedom.  Join us Wednesday, June 24th at 5:30 pm for a special Mass and Holy Hour in honor of St. John the Baptist to pray for the preservation of religious freedom and the sanctity of Christian Marriage between one man and one woman.  The USCCB website offers this:    

      . .

      The Fortnight for Freedom: Freedom to Bear Witness will take place from June 21 to July 4, 2015, a time when our liturgical calendar celebrates a series of great martyrs who remained faithful in the face of persecution by political power—St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, St. John the Baptist, SS. Peter and Paul, and the First Martyrs of the Church of Rome. The theme of this year's Fortnight will focus on the "freedom to bear witness" to the truth of the Gospel.

       

       

      Pledge to Fast during the Call to Prayer for Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty

       

      Take the Pledge:  I pledge to join the bishops' call to prayer by fasting and abstaining from meat on Fridays for the intention of the protection of  Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty.

       

      *A note on fasting and abstinence: As penitential practices, fasting and abstinence unites us to the redemptive suffering and death of the Lord. Latin Church Catholics in the United States are especially encouraged to abstain from meat on all Fridays throughout the year, in remembrance of the day Christ died for our salvation, and to observe fasting during the weekdays of Lent. Both fasting and abstinence are, however, obligatory on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Abstinence from meat is further required on the Fridays during Lent, unless a solemnity falls on a Friday. The norm consists of abstaining from meat; this abstinence does not include eggs, milk products, or sauces made with animal fats. There are many forms of fasting. The norm consists of eating only one full meal each day; two smaller meals may also be taken, as needed, but not to equal a full meal. Some Catholics may elect to observe a literal all-day fast, or give up particular foods or drinks in addition to their abstinence from meat. Please consult a priest if you have further questions.

       


       

       

       

      2013

      Pictured at the left is our newly-remodeled chapel. We repainted it, put in new light fixtures and new stained glass window films, added the mini library and put in new stations of the cross. This was a labor of love and dedication of the parishioners. Thanks so much for all those who have given their time, effort, and resources to make this project a reality. Blessings to you!


      Parish Activities


       

       

       

      Pictured at the left is our Annual Parish Picnic, held this time at the parish grounds on September 18, 2013. The theme of this picnic was "You're a Sport!" Parishioners came with their favorite team apparels and some, with a good sense of being a "sport". It was a lot of fun.
