Immaculate Conception & St. Wenceslaus Parishes Welcome Back Totus Tuus

Geralyn Ward, St. Patrick, Cedar Rapids

By Geralyn Ward, Director of Religious Education, St. Patrick, Cedar Rapids

 

VBS is great but Totus Tuus is better! At least that’s what we were hoping when we decided to set aside our successful VBS programs and try something new and we haven’t been disappointed.

News seemed to travel … Continue reading…

Dispensation from the obligation to abstain from meat on St. Patrick’s Day, 2017

To the Catholic faithful in the Archdiocese of Dubuque,

Those of us who are 14 years of age and older are obliged by Church law to practice the penance of abstaining from eating meat on the Fridays of Lent.

This tradition helps us to remember how Jesus loved us and gave himself up to death for our salvation, as well to inspire us to imitate Jesus’ loving gift of self by an act of penance or charity.

However, as St. Patrick’s Day this year falls on a Friday of Lent, and as celebrations often include serving meat, Catholics in the Archdiocese of Dubuque … Continue reading…
