We Are in the Season of Lent

 

Not sure what Lent is all about or why we do some

of the things we do during this time? Use the links in

this box to learn more.

 

Ash Wednesday (Feb 10) and Good Friday (March 25) are

days of abstinence from meat and also days of fast

(limited to a single full meal). The other Fridays in

Lent are days of abstinence from meat. Abstinence is

binding on Catholics age 14+. The discipline of fasting

is binding on Catholics ages 18-58. This is also a wonderful season to participate in the sacraments and devotions of the Church. See below for additional opportunities!

Evening Prayer at St. Bartholomew

7 PM on Wednesdays (Febuary 17 and March 2 & 26)

 

Evening Prayer is part of the Liturgy of the Hours, also known as the Divine Office. In the Liturgy of the Hours, the Church fulfills Jesus' command to "pray always" (Luke 18:1). Through this prayer, the people of God sanctify the day by continual praise of God and prayers of intercession for the needs of the world.

 

Evening Prayer gives thanks for the day that has just passed and makes an evening sacrifice of praise to God (Psalm 141:1). It involves praying a responsory (reflects the reading), the Gospel Canticle, intercessions, singing of the Psalms, and the Lord's Prayer. A beautiful way to end the day...

Jubilee Year of Mercy

December 8, 2015 through November 20, 2016

 

"We need constantly to contemplate the mystery of mercy. It is a wellspring of joy, serenity, and peace.

Our salvation depends on it...

 

At times we are called to gaze even more attentively on mercy so that we may become a more effective sign of the Father's action in our lives."

~ Pope Francis, in the Bull of Indiction

for the Year of Mercy

 

Learn more about how to fully embrace, celebrate, and live the mercy of God!

Remembering Your Loved One

 

Consider having the red sanctuary candle by the

tabernacle lit "in honor of" or "in memory of" your loved

one. The suggested donation would be $5, and the candle would burn for one week. Your loved one would be

mentioned in the bulletin and during the weekend

intentions. If you are interested, contact Joanne at the

parish office (522.3680).
