    Catholics throughout the world observe the Fridays of Lent as days of abstinence from meat and meat products.  The Fridays of Lent are meatless days.  It is a day to be in solidarity with the worldwide church as well as with the poor who often never get enough to eat each day.  If families are able to make some sacrifice of eating on these days, perhaps the money can be given to some group that serves the hungry.


    Baptisms at Ascension:  There are no Baptisms during Lent.  Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 10th.  In February, there will be Baptisms on Saturday, February 6th in English and Sunday, February 7th in Spanish.  Baptisms resume in April.
