Grace of Motherhood

Are you interested in learning more about Grace of Motherhood, a moms group open to all mothers in our parish.  We meet twice a month and share in faith and friendship, and have a few laughs along the way!!  We are also involved with a number of service opportunities for our group and our families, it’s our labor of motherly love.   Our next gatherings will be March 3 at 9:30am in the Mary Chapel and March 10 at 7:30pm in the church; both gatherings will involve praying Mary’s Way of the Cross (a mother’s version of Stations of the Cross).  We will also begin planning for our annual bake sale in May where we will be fundraising for supplying Mary’s Closet which will house supplies needed by families in emergency situations (diapers, cleaning supplies, school supplies, etc) at St. Petronille.  Contact me at for more information about upcoming gatherings!

Lenten Regulations

 1.    Everyone 14 years of age or over is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent.

2.    All from the age of 18 years up to the beginning of their 60th year are bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

3.    On these two days of fast and abstinence, only one full meatless meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted on these two days, but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are allowed.  When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige.

4.    To disregard completely the law of fast and abstinence is sinful.

5.    Lent is the principal season of penance in the Church year.  Therefore, all of the faithful are strongly urged to develop and follow a program of voluntary self-denial. All Catholics are encouraged to support generously the charitable works of the whole Church, pray and perform works of charity and mercy.

6.    Those who are sick, pregnant, or nursing, or whose health would adversely be affected by fasting or abstinence, should not consider themselves bound by these norms.
