    Lenten Regulation

    Lenten regulations are as follows:

    1. Catholics who have celebrated their 14th birthday are to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, all Fridays in Lent, and Good Friday.

    2. In addition to abstaining from meat, Catholics who have celebrated their 18th birthday, until they celebrate their 59th birthday, are to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Those who are bound to this regulation may eat only one full meal. Two smaller meals are permitted if necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted.

    Stations of the Cross

    St. James will have Stations of the Cross followed by a soup supper each Friday during Lent. We are once again looking for people to make a soup for the supper. If you are interested, please comment below or call Natalie at 608-843-9443.
