Bulletin - February 28, 2021
From the Pastor:
The deadline has been extended to February 28th to turn in all Confirmation paperwork. It is very important to understand that this is very last day any paperwork will be accepted in order to be registered for the March 9th Confirmation ceremony. If all paperwork is not received by the 28th, the candidate will not be eligible for Confirmation this Spring (no exceptions), and will potentially have to wait until Fall 2021 to be confirmed. Please be attentive in promptly getting all paperwork to the Parish Office as soon as possible – postal mailed, emailed, or drop off in an envelope.

Lenten Regulations and Admonitions
As another Lenten journey of conversion begins with Ash Wednesday on Feb. 17 and ends with the Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, April 1, all Catholics are called to a deeper spirit of penance, fasting, almsgiving and prayer, “which express conversion in relation to oneself, to God, and to others” (Catechism of the Catholic Church Nos. 1434 and 1969). Abstinence: all persons who have already celebrated their 14th birthday are bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, all Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday. Fasting: everyone, from the celebration of their 18th birthday to their 59th birthday, is bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Fasting is generally understood to mean eating only one full meal each day. For more information, check out: diojeffcity.org/lenten-regulations

Lenten Goals for the School
We are asking all to go out of their way to show kindness towards each other. Modeling this behavior at home will help with the project at school as well. Please work to make sure all students remember their water bottles and face coverings each day. We will be eliminating snacks for all classes except for Kindergarten during Lent and we will not be having parties. If birthdays happen during the Lenten season, they can be celebrated like we do our summer birthdays. Plan the date with your child’s teacher.
