DURING LENT – TAKE ADVANTAGE OF WHAT GOD WANTS TO GIVE YOU! 

During Lent, the entire Church takes on common Lenten Spiritual Exercises. All Catholics aged 18-59 are called to abstain from meat every Friday in Lent, and to fast and abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. (Meat does not include fish and fasting means one full meal plus up to two snacks, if needed, that if combined do not constitute a second full meal). 

In addition, everyone should take on their own personal resolution as a means to open ourselves to hear God. Pray about what prevents you from hearing God's voice in your daily life and choose a resolution to help you hear God again by removing those obstacles. Fasting from social media, or news, or alcohol, etc. are good ways to open up space in our souls to hear God more clearly.

All grades meet on Sunday mornings 10:00-11:00 a.m. This enables families to attend Mass prior to or after Faith Formation class and we follow the City of Stamford school/holiday schedule.
