New Parish App Coming Soon!
St. Thomas More will launch our own app for iPhone and Android smart phones. This will allow us to better communicate with you throughout the week and keep you updated with relevant parish news or updates. The app is very well designed and very intuitive. It will be a great resource for parishioners by providing daily Mass readings, Catholic news and prayers, convenient prayer and Confession reminders, our bulletins and more. We hope for our new app to be a tool for fostering stronger parish life at St. Thomas More and better engaging the New Evangelization.
REGULATIONS FOR FASTING AND ABSTINENCE Ash Wednesday, February 10, and Good Friday, March 25 are days of fasting, unless the ability to work would be seriously affected. When in doubt concerning fast and abstinence, consult the parish priest.
FASTING is to be observed by all persons 18 years of age and older, who have not yet celebrated their 59th birthday. On a fast day, one full meal is allowed. Two other meals sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted, but liquids, including milk and juices, are allowed.
ABSTINENCE is observed by all persons 14 years of age and older. On days of abstinence, no meat is allowed. Ash Wednesday, and all Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence.
FASTING, ALMSGIVING AND PRAYER are the three traditional disciplines of Lent. The faithful and catechumens should undertake these practices seriously in a spirit of penance and in preparation for Baptism or renewal of Baptismal promises at Easter.
