St. John Fisher Roman Catholic Church

The goal of our Faith Formation program here at St. John Fisher Church is 1) to partner with families in helping our youth deepen their faith and 2) to bring every child to a closer relationship with Jesus.

 

Grades 1-6 meets from mid-September to mid-April every Tuesday afternoon from 3-4 pm at Elmer Thienes-Mary Hall School. A faithful staff of trained, volunteer catechists guides our students in the early years of their faith journey.

 

Note: We will NOT have class on Tuesday February 16.

LENT: Fasting and Abstinence

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting and abstinence. All Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence.
FASTING means to refrain from eating food between meals and to eat only one full meal with the other two being lighter meals. It is required of those who are age 18 to 59. Liquids are permitted between meals.
ABSTINENCE means to refrain from eating meat. It is required of those 14 years of age and older.

DO YOU PLAN TO FAST THIS LENTEN SEASON?

When pondering what to give up this year, consider Pope Francis’ suggestions to observe this Lent:

  • Fast from hurting words and say kind words.
  • Fast from sadness and be filled with gratitude.
  • Fast from anger and be filled with patience.
  • Fast from pessimism and be filled with hope.
  • Fast from worries and have trust in God.
  • Fast from complaints and contemplate simplicity.
  • Fast from pressures and be prayerful.
  • Fast from bitterness and fill your hearts with joy.
  • Fast from selfishness and be compassionate to others
  • Fast from grudges and be reconciled.
  • Fast from words and be silent so you can listen.

“Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
