The Season of Lent in the Collaborative
The Light is on For You – Wednesday Night Confessions
In our Collaborative this Lent on Wednesday, March 8, 15, 22, 29 and April 5 and 12
from 6:30-8:00pm, St. Brendan’s Parish will be open for individual confessions.
Inviting Catholics to experience Christ’s healing love through the Sacrament of Reconciliation,
The Light is On For You is an ongoing initiative of Cardinal Seán in the Archdiocese.
A special website www.TheLightIsOnForYou.org is available to help you prepare for the sacrament.
It has videos on the Sacrament of Reconciliation, materials on how to make a good confession,
answers to frequently-asked questions and more.
Please make plans to come on these Wednesdays and spread the word
of this special outreach of mercy to those you know.

Lenten Regulations on Fast and Abstinence
During the Lenten Season, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday

In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.
For Catholics, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59.
When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal,
as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal.
The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members
of the Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.
