March 2 is Ash Wednesday, marking the beginning of the season of Lent. It is an obligatory day of fasting and abstinence for Catholics from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. Abstinence from meat is obligatory for Catholics ages 14 and older.
During Lent, all Fridays are obligatory days of abstinence from meat.
In Lent, we will hold bilingual stations of the Cross every Friday at St. Ita church. At St. Gregory, there will be confessions every Saturday before the Vigil Mass, starting at 3:30 PM.
On August 28th, we celebrated Fr. Paul Wachdorf's service to St. Gregory with Mass and festivities, and the blessing of the Wachdorf Cross honoring his achievements as pastor. Congratulations on your retirement, Fr. Paul, and thank you for all you have done for St. Gregory!
