Preparation for Lent - Catechesis on Penance

Posted : Feb-19-2023

This weekend, the 7th Sunday of Ordinary Time which is the last Sunday before Lent, Fr. Maderak reminded us about our obligations for Ash Wednesday and our duties for fasting and penance.  This is very timely as Lent begins this Wednesday and is a time of penance. He mentioned the Apostolic Constitution by St. Pope Paul VI entitled "Paenitemini (Penance)". Please read this document as it is outlines what we are called to do regarding penance, not only for Lent, but during the whole year.  If you click on the link, you can find this document written in English, Italian, Spanish and Latin - click on the appropriate language in the top right corner of the page after clicking on the link.
