Lent begins February 14, 2018

Lenten Regulations

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

2. All from the age of 18 years up to the beginning of their 60th year are bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

3. On these two days of fast and abstinence, 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.

4. To disregard completely the law of fast and abstinence is seriously sinful.

5. Lent is the principal season of penance in the Church year.  All of the faithful are strongly urged to develop and follow a program of voluntary self-denial (in addition to following the Lenten regulations), serious prayer, and a performance of works of charity and mercy.

Applicants must be a registered St. Mary's parishioner and a graduating high school senior who will be continuing his/her education.

All application materials must be fully completed and returned to the rectory porch no later than March 5, 2018, in order to be considered for this scholarship. Applications submitted without the required, official high school transcripts and/or other required verifications will be considered incomplete and therefore not eligible.

All applicants are strongly encouraged to volunteer as a helper at the St. Patrick’s Day Dinner on March 4, 2018. Please call the rectory (815-467-2233) to sign up to work and someone will get back to you. The proceeds from this dinner are a major source for the St. Mary’s scholarships.
