My hope is to be able to livestream all the Masses and liturgies during Holy Week. If for some reason they cannot be livestreamed, we will post them on the YouTube channel as soon as we can. Due to the use of the internet, all livestreaming will be from Columbus.
Jesus asked that the Feast of the Divine Mercy be preceded by a Novena to His Divine Mercy beginning on Good Friday. In her diary, St. Faustina wrote that Jesus told her: “On each day of the novena you will bring to My heart a different group of souls and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy … On each day you will beg My Father, on the strength of My passion, for the graces for these souls.”
Good Friday – Fast and Abstain from Meat: Catholics, from the 18th birthday up to the 59th birthday (the beginning of the 60th year) are obliged to fast, that is, take only one full meal and two lesser meals, with nothing to eat in between meals. Drinking fluids is not contrary to the practice of fasting. All Catholics, beginning with the 14th birthday, are obliged to abstain from eating meat. People who are unable to practice bodily penance, due to pregnancy, illness, or hard physical labor may choose another form of penance or charity.

Pope St. John Paul II says, “How beautiful is the family that recites the Rosary every evening!” and St. Pio says, “The Rosary is the Weapon”. Please join us praying the rosary at 7:00 pm this Wednesday and following Wednesdays until we can all worship together again. The YouTube channel has a video of the rosary being prayed. Although this video was prerecorded, know that at 7:00 pm I will be praying the rosary with all of you.
