During Lent, the following fasting and abstinence rules are observed:

Abstinence
from meat is observed on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all the Fridays of Lent by all Catholics 14 years of age and older. Poultry and meat resulting from the slaughter of mammals is considered "meat". Therefore, chicken, pork, beef, and lamb are considered "meat" and may not be eaten . Fish, eggs, shellfish, and cold-blooded animals are not considered "meat".

Fasting is observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by all Catholics who are 18 years of age and older but not yet 59. Those bound by this rule may take only one full meal. Two smaller meals are permitted as necessary to maintain strength according to one's needs, but eating solid foods is not permitted.

Eucharistic Adoration: Friday 4:30 p.m. - Saturday 4:30 p.m. - Volunteers are needed so we can continue our Eucharistic Adoration.  If you are interested in volunteering, please call the parish office or contact Chuck Grimes (407) 568-1071.  Signing up does not mean that you are committed for life.  Every week we call volunteers to make sure that you are able to cover your hour(s).  If you are not able to make it, we will ask another volunteer to cover for you.

Confessions:  Saturday  4:45 p.m. - 5:45 p.m.

Registration:  Parish registration can be done after each Mass on the weekend (except First Saturday morning) in the Church lobby.  Parish registration becomes effective after 3 months of active participation at Sunday Mass and worthy reception of Sacraments.

Funerals:  Roman Catholic funerals are held in the Parish Church with the special blessings of the Catholic Funeral Mass and the final Blessing.  This fulfills the spiritual journey that began at Baptism in the Church, and continued through other sacraments throughout their entire spiritual life concluding with the Funeral Mass.
