Promoting Life

During Lent the Mother Cabrini River North Council of the Knights of Columbus will be conducting a fund-raising drive for the Well of Mercy/McGivney Center for Hope and Healing, a charitable organization that provides transitional housing, spiritual nurturing, and other support services to women with unplanned pregnancies who carry their baby to term.

Lenten Regulations

All Catholics 14 and over should abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and on all the Fridays of Lent. Those 18 to 59 are also expected to fast (only one full meal) on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
