Our season of Lent begins this Wednesday, Ash Wednesday. Please see the schedule of the Masses and prayer service in the listing of services elsewhere in this bulletin. Also please note the basic guidelines for Lenten practices also noted elsewhere in this bulletin. (Except of course for St. Patrick’s Day this year---our Bishops of Wisconsin have given a dispensation from abstaining from meat on that Friday)
We are planning a Communal Penance Service on Saturday, April 1 at 10:30 am. We are trying a Saturday this season to see if more people are able to participate and find that time more convenient than an evening weeknight service. Individual reconciliation continues every Saturday at 10:30 am at our St. Peter Church site.
Also looking ahead to Saturday, April 1, following the 4:30 pm Mass at the St. Peter Church site, we will be offering the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick. Anyone who could use the support and prayers of the church in the midst of illness is invited to receive the Sacrament.
