50th Anniversary Celebration

50th

This year Our Lady of Grace is celebrating the 50th anniversary of our current church’s construction! One of the needs of our parish in this anniversary year is a new organ – our current organ is very old and parts are no longer available to properly restore it. The funds raised from this year’s raffle will go toward the purchase of a new organ. Our Anniversary Committee is in the process of planning other activities throughout this year to celebrate this parish milestone. Please plan to be part of our celebration.

easter 1Easter reminds us of the ultimate sacrifices that Jesus made for us on the cross. God the Father sent His only Son to proclaim the Good News. As stewards, we are called by God to be generous caretakers of the Lord’s many blessings. Remember, God will never be outdone in generosity to each and every one of us. During this Lenten season, please prayerfully consider an Easter gift of $50.00 or more. As Scripture says, May your generosity be rewarded a “hundredfold.”

Fr. Edward J. Moszur

LENT

FASTING

The Lenten Fast is a fast of penance.

Our selfdenial is a way of emphasizing our dependence on God. Fasting allows for only (1) full meal taken during the day. (2) small meals are permitted, if necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs. Eating solid foods not permitted ABSTINENCE is the practice of refraining from Meat and Meat Products.
Fasting and abstinence is to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by all Catholics who have celebrated their 18th birthday and who have not yet celebrated their 59th birthday.
Fridays during Lent are marked by the discipline of abstinence from meat.
