Given that we were not able to notify you in advance, we are inviting you to participate in a day of fasting and prayer on what we are calling “Holy Tuesday”, this coming Tuesday, September 10th. Daily Mass begins at 8:30am, followed by Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament which will continue until 7pm. Additionally, we encourage everyone to participate in a day of fasting.

Fasting may take many forms: fasting from foods, fasting from anger, fasting from gossip or other things that may keep us from focusing on God.
