Lent is underway!
St. Mark's is offering a number of opportunities--including a Bible Study, a Speaker Series, a Food Drive, Opportunities for Confession, and more--to help our parish Family make the most of this holy season. See a full list of liturgies and events at onestrongfamily.org/lent.
Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of Fasting and Abstinence. For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory 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. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards. Learn more on the USCCB's website.
