Lent is Upon Us!
Lent is a time of reflection, of prayer, fasting, and giving. Join us at OLMC for lenten observances in preparation for the most glorious celebration in our faith...EASTER!
Our lenten schedule of events is as follows:
Ash Wednesday Mass Masses will be held at OLMC (8:00am and 7:00pm) and St. Leonard's (9:00am and 7:00pm) on Ash Wednesday, February 14. NOTE: Ash Wednesday falls on February 14, aka St. Valentine’s Day. Bishop Fernandes will not authorize any dispensation from the requirements for Ash Wednesday. The obligation to fast for those between the ages of 18 and 59 and the obligation to abstain from meat for those from the age of 14 onward are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church.
