FAREWELL MASS FOR FATHER PETER MUSHI, AJ, INSTALLATION OF FR. NESTORIO NEW PASTOR AND BLESSING OF OUR NEW ALTAR: This is to inform you that on Tuesday February 23, 2010, at 6.30 p.m. as a parish, we shall have a farewell Mass for Fr. Peter Mushi, AJ, installation of Fr. Nestorio Agirembabazi, AJ, new pastor and blessing of St. Angela Merici new Altar. The Holy Mass will be presided over by Most Rev. Josu Iriondo, Auxiliary Bishop of New York. You are all warmly welcome on that special event.

ANNUAL STEWARDSHIP APPEAL 2010: Saint Angela Merici Church always supports the Appeals of the Archdiocese of New York very generously each year. For this year’s annual Stewardship appeal, we please humbly ask every parishioner to cooperate by pledging $25.00 per person. This way we shall reach our goal smoothly and in a very short time. Parishioners will receive special envelops for this collection. Thank you for your cooperation and God bless you during this season of Lent.

THE WAY OF THE CROSS DURING LENT: At St. Angela Merici Catholic church, the service of the way of the cross will be done every Thursday at 6:30 pm in Spanish and on Fridays at 7:00pm.

ABSTINENCE: During Lent, abstinence from meat on Fridays is obligatory in the United States as elsewhere, and it is sinful not to observe this discipline without a serious reason. Abstinence must be observed by all Baptized Catholics who have completed their14 year and above.

FASTING: The law of fasting requires a Catholic from the 18th Birthday to 59th Birthday, to reduce the amount of food eaten from normal during the season of Lent.

WHO ARE EXCUSED FROM FAST AND ABSTINENCE? All those outside the age limits, those with unsound mind, the sick, the frail, pregnant or nursing women, manual laborers according to need, guests at a meal who cannot excuse themselves without giving great offence or causing enmity and other situations of moral or physical impossibility to observe the penitential discipline.

HOMEBOUND: Whoever knows catholic believers who are homebound and are in need of receiving holy communion or the sacrament of reconciliation, should come to the parish office and provide us with the names, address and phone numbers of each homebound person in order to make it possible for the Priests, Deacon or Eucharistic ministers to reach them during this season of Lent.
