Praying for Ukraine

O God, to whom Mercy and forgiveness belong.

Hear our prayers on behalf of your people in Ukraine.

Lord, your own Son was delivered into the hands of the wicked, yet he prayed for his persecutors and overcame hatred with the blood of the cross. Relieve the sufferings of the people of Ukraine. Grant them peace and a renewed faith in your protection and care. Protect them all from any form of violence and aggression.  Keep them from the weapons of hate and restore to them tranquility and peace. This we ask through our Savior Jesus Christ, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, One God for ever and ever, Amen.

Fr. Joseph Domfe

ASH WEDNESDAY, February 22, 2023

Mass Schedule

7:00 AM

12:00 PM


Lent is the principal season of penance in the Christian year. Priests, religious and laity are strongly urged to develop and follow a program of voluntary self-denial, attentiveness to prayer, and especially to works of charity and mercy.

Everyone of 14 years of age or over is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, February 22, 2023, and all the Fridays of Lent.

Everyone 18 years of age and under 59 years of age is bound to fast on Ash Wednesday, February 22, 2023, and Good Friday, April 7, 2023.

On these two days of fast and abstinence, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, only one full meatless meal is allowed. Two other meatless 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 on these two days, but liquids including milk and fruit juices are allowed. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige.
