UPCOMING PARISH ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS....
Stations of the Cross and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament will be held TWICE each week: on Friday evenings at 5:30 p.m. at St. Felix and on Sunday evenings at 7:00 p.m. at St. Agnes. There will also be Stations of the Cross on Friday afternoons after lunch at 12:45 p.m. for our children attending St. Felix Catholic School. Everyone is welcome to attend these many opportunities to meditate on the suffering and death of Our Lord. “A plenary indulgence is granted the Christian faithful who devoutly make the Stations of the Cross under the usual conditions of communion, confession, and a prayer for the Pope’s intentions.” (Handbook of Indulgences, #63)
Every Wednesday evening during Lent all 7th – 11th grade Faith Formation classes will be meeting at Church from 7-8:15 to listen to the Lenten Talks. Everyone is welcome to attend these lectures – Catholics and non-Catholics, young people and adults. The young people attending Religious Education classes on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 8:15 p.m. are required to attend these lectures with their parents. Roll call will be taken by their teachers in the church, and they will sit as a class.
All Fridays of the year are Days of Abstinence from meat. All Catholics who are 14 years old and older are required to abstain from meat on ALL Fridays of the year. (Outside of Lent the Bishops of the United States have given Catholics permission to substitute another penance in place of not eating meat.) “Parents are to see to it that minors who are not bound by the law of fast and abstinence are educated in an authentic sense of penance.” (Code of Canon Law, #1251-1252)
