PARISH OFFICE CLOSED
We had a very full calendar this week with the
Chinese New Year, the 100th Day of School, Mardi
Gras, Ash Wednesday, and St. Valentine's Day!
Our kindergarteners and first graders celebrated the
100th day of school this week by coming to school
dressed as their 100-year-old selves. Look for our
pint-sized centenarians on the St. Kieran Catholic
School Facebook page.
We began the season of Lent with a schoolwide
retreat on Ash Wednesday. We will observe Stations
of the Cross on Fridays at 2:25, led by students,
culminating with Living Stations on Friday, March
18th. We invite our parish family to join us.
Sincerely in Christ,
Patricia Provo, Principal
The Parish Office will be closed on
Monday, February 15th in
Observance of the holiday. We will

THE MINIMUM FOR
FASTING AND ABSTINENCE
All Catholics, age 14 and older must abstain from meat on
Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all Fridays of Lent. In
addition, on Ash Wednesday and good Friday, Catholics
from age 18-59 fast, limiting themselves to one full meal and
two smaller meals per day. Everyone is encouraged to fast
and abstain.
PRAYER: Catholics are encouraged to pray during Lent,
especially with Scripture. Lent is also an ideal time to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation in preparation for the
celebration of Christ’s Passion, Death and Resurrection.
ALMSGIVING: Moved by the sacrifice of Christ, many
Christians combine almsgiving with fasting, giving to the
poor the money they saved by eating, drinking, or buying
less as they rely more upon God’s abundant grace.

Wednesday evenings 7:00pm
(Meet in the Saint Mary’s Youth Room
located near the Hall)
