“May this season of Lent be a time of true grace,
a time to challenge ourselves

and a time to grow in relationship to Christ and one another.”
- Fr. John Gabriel

The days of both Fast and Abstinence during Lent are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. If possible, the fast on Good Friday is continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday night) as the “paschal fast” to honor the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus, and to prepare ourselves to share more fully and to celebrate more readily His Resurrection. The other Fridays of Lent are days of Abstinence.

On the day of Fast, only one (1) full meal is permitted, and two (2) smaller meals, which, if added together, would not exceed the main meal in quantity.  Those between ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast. On a day of Abstinence, no meat may be eaten. Those who have reached the age of 14 are obliged by the law of abstinence. The obligation to observe the laws of Fast and Abstinence “substantially”, or as a whole, is serious obligation.

The Fridays of the year, outside of Lent, are designated as days of penance, but each individual may substitute for the traditional abstinence from meat some other practice of voluntary self -denial as penance.  The time of fulfilling the Paschal Precept (Easter Duty*) extends from the First Sunday of Lent, March 5, 2017 to The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, June 11, 2017.

The St. Paul Fish Fry offers an opportunity for parishioners to come together and share a meal, while our youth group helps helps out by serving you a delicious meal. The menu is served al a cart and includes Fish & Chips, Corn & Clam Chowder, Fresh Pizza, Tossed Salad, assorted beverages, and weekly Pasta, Fish, & Dessert Specials! Eat in for the community feel or enjoy the convenience of take-out. Food is served from 5:30pm until 8:00pm. Please click "Read More" below for additional information and the menu.
