Kyrie Eleison :+: LENT 2019

 

The forty days of Lent begin on Ash Wednesday, March 6th and comes to a quiet close on the evening of Holy Thursday, on April 18th. AGLOChicago invites you to come pray, fast and give with us, as we ask the Lord to have Mercy, on our journey to Easter joy.

 

Sacrament of Reconciliation

 

Lent is a good time to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and receive God’s grace and forgiveness of our sins. Through the Lenten season, the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be offered each Sunday in Lent (through April 7th). Confessions will be heard from 6:20 pm to 6:45 pm in the church reconciliation room. Please see an Usher for location information.

So now you know this important Sacrament is available this Lent—but what is it and how do you do it? To help you better understand the Sacrament and how to go about it, watch these short videos from our friends at Busted Halo.  PART ONE   PART TWO


Lenten Fasting & Abstinence

 

Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. In addition, all Catholics 14 years old and older must abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all the Fridays of Lent.

 

Fasting: partaking of only one full meal. Some food (not equaling another full meal) is permitted twice a day, if needed, in order to maintain strength.

 

Abstinence: forbids the use of meat, but not of eggs or milk products.
