Good Friday — April 14, 2017, is a day of Fast and Abstinence

Fridays of Lent — are days of Abstinence.

Fast:  All adults are bound by the Law of Fast up to the beginning of their 60th year.  (Canon 1252) “A person who has completed their 18th year of age is an adult.”  (Canon 97, p. 1)

On days of Fast, 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 fruit juices, are allowed.

Note – When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige.  When in doubt concerning Fast or Abstinence, a parish priest or confessor should be consulted.

Lenten Parish Missions -- Save the Dates

Our annual Lenten mission is scheduled for Sunday, March 12 through Wednesday, March 15.  A Dominican, Fr. Reginald Lynch, OP, will present this year’s theme.

He will focus on the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and role of the family in catechesis and spreading the faith in the context of those gifts.

We hope to see you there.  More details soon.

Join Us for Bishop Barron Series

John the Baptist’s statement, “Christ must increase and I must
decrease,” defines what it means to be holy. The journey to sanctity
involves knowing the truth about yourself and allowing God to work
through you for the good of his creation.

Explore the three paths to holiness with Bishop Robert Barron: finding
the center, knowing you are a sinner, and recognizing that your life is
not about you.

Learn more about this journey by participating in Bishop Barron’s study
program, Untold Blessing: Three Paths to Holiness.

Sessions are Sundays 9:30 – 10:45 AM (February 12 – March 19)
Accompanying workbook also available for $17.
For questions or to order the workbook, contact Chad Grube at chad@stpatrick-kokomo.org or call 452-6021 ext. 324.

Semi-Annual Haiti Trivia Night (January 27)

AnnouncementsThe next Trivia Night for Haiti is Friday, Jan. 27, from 7-10 PM in the St. Patrick Parish Hall.  Registration will begin at 6:30.  Sponsored by the St. Patrick Haiti Ministry, all proceeds will benefit our sister parish in Marfranc, Haiti, as they recover from Hurricaine Matthew.   To take part in this fun evening, either come alone or with friends, or bring your own team of 6 players.  Anyone can play whether you have a little or a lot of important tidbits of information about many subjects and are willing to be put to the test for a cash prize.  The teams compete against each other during 6 or so rounds of questions; each round is a different category.  The team members confer among themselves to come up with the correct answers to the questions.  At the end of each round, the answer sheets of each of the teams are scored.  After all the rounds, and a final Trivia Challenge, the team with the highest score will win a cash prize.  Delicious Brownie Sundaes and canned drinks will be available for purchase.  Admission fee is $10 per person.  To register your team, make a donation, or if you want to help or be on a team, but don’t have enough people, please call Rita Morrow at 453-2632.  Thank you for your continued support.
