Lenten Events and Regulations
Catholics join in a common observance of penance during Lent. We set aside days to exercise works of prayer, fasting and charity.
Abstinence—not eating meat
Is for all Catholics 14 years and older
Is required on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent, including Good Friday
Fasting—eating only one full meal a day and not eating between meals
Is for all Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59
Only one full meal, two smaller meals are permitted if necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs
Is required on Ash Wednesday & Good Friday
Exceptions: the obligation doesn’t apply to those whose health would be affected seriously. People in doubt about fasting or abstinence should consult a parish priest.

Year of Saint Joseph
Pope Francis proclaimed a “Year of Saint Joseph” from 8 December 2020, to 8 December 2021. This recalls the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. –On March 19, 2020, the Feast of St. Joseph, we celebrated our last public mass before we went into shut down with the CoronaVirus. At that mass I placed a votive candle before St. Joseph to protect and watch over his Church. That light has been burning for these past 10 months. We will be setting up a shrine to St. Joseph in the South entrance of St. Augustine –and a votive candle will be kept burning in front of St. Joseph at St. Edward.
The Apostolic Penitentiary in the Vatican is offering a number of Plenary Indulgences, under the usual conditions, for prayer and devotion to St. Joseph. These include: making a spiritual retreat of at least one day meditating on St. Joseph, meditating on the Lord’s Prayer for at least 30 minutes, performing a Spiritual or Corporal Work of Mercy following the example of St. Joseph, reciting the rosary as couples or in families, invoking St. Joseph to find “dignifying work,” recitation of the Litany of St. Joseph, and invoking St. Joseph on days set aside for his devotion, such as March 19, May 1, and Wednesdays of the week.
