Lent is an incredible time of year for every Christian to grow closer to the Sacred Heart of Jesus that sacrificed His Body, Blood, and Life in great love to set us free from sin.  

We are called to make extra penances during this season to make an offering acceptable to the Lord from our own lives.  To the right here is the USCCB's clarifications for the rules of fasting and abstinence that are binding on every Catholic.  

Please not the encouragement at the bottom.  

We should also be making personal penances that we choose to impose upon ourselves.  It is laudable to elect to remove one tiny sin from your lives permanently this season.  

Furthermore, we are called to frequent the Sacrament of Reconciliation, especially during the Lenten Penance Rite March 2nd at 7 pm.  Please take an examination of conscience beforehand to prepare well for your confession.  

Other good spiritual activities and devotions will be made visible under the Upcoming tab.  Please make use of these as they are meant for your spiritual benefit.
