Join us for Lent 2023
Our Knights of Columbus Council #1739 will have a Fish Fry every Friday during Lent, and also on Good Friday, from 5:00-7:30 p.m. at the KC Hall in Albion. At 6:30 p.m. the Chaplet of Divine Mercy is prayed in song and at 7:00 p.m. we have the Stations of the Cross, all at church.
Lent continues until the Easter triduum, which begins with evening Mass of the Lord's Supper on Thursday, April 6, and runs through Easter Sunday, April 9.
The current Church regulations on fasting and abstinence remind us that fasting is required of all Catholics age 18-59 on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. On these days only one full meal is allowed, with two smaller meals as needed. Eating solid food between meals is not allowed. Abstinence from meat is required of all Catholics over the age of 14 on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all of the other Fridays of Lent. Those who are illl, pregnant, on medication or special diets for health concerns, or those who must work at extremely physical jobs may be exempt from these regulations.
We will return to our spring/summer Sunday Mass schedule on Sunday, March 19!
Mass will be at 10:00 a.m. at St. Michael's and at 8:00 a.m. at St. Anthony's in Cedar Rapids.
