WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2016 IS ASH WEDNESDAY

Schedule for Ash Wednesday and Holy Week

Remember that Lent is a time of fast and abstinence and follow the 2016 Lenten Regulations

Join us for Lenten Soup Suppers each Friday evening during Lent. Suppers begin at 6:00 pm in the parish hall and are followed by Stations of the Cross at 7:00 pm in the church.

Our Pastor, Father Angelito, has determined that due to the rising incidence of zika virus and other communicable diseases, it is prudent to distribute Holy Communion under the form of bread, only, and to omit the exchange of peace among members of the congregation. These changes, which are consistent with the Roman Missal, began on Ash Wednesday and will continue until conditions improve.

Millions of unborn babies are desperately in need of your prayers. Are you continuing to pray for the baby that you have spiritually adopted?
WILL YOU TAKE A BABY BOTTLE and help the homeless, pregnant mothers of Good Counsel Homes? The weekend of February 13th and 14th, St. Catherine’s Respect Life Ministry and Good Counsel Homes will be asking for your support for the mothers that have chosen to give their baby life despite what life dictates. The Riverside home, for homeless, pregnant mothers, is the first home to open in the Southern New Jersey area and has welcomed 53 babies - with twin boys born December 30th. You will simply be asked to take a baby bottle home with you, fill it with spare change, dollars, checks, or whatever your means allow, and return it by the end of Respect Life Month, for our baby shower, February 27th and 28th. Just look for the collection bins with our baby pictures on them for your bottle return. Thank you for supporting life. 
 

**The Rosary Altar Society will be holding its Bake Sale on February 13/14 after each mass in the parish hall. Donated baked goods will be greatly appreciated.
