As of March 13, 2020, by the directive of the Archdiocese of Santa Fe, all Masses and church functions have been cancelled until further notice. Even though all public Masses are cancelled for the time being, Father Emmanuel will continue to celebrate Masses privately. All the Mass intentions that have been paid will still be offered when Father celebrates Mass privately. Your intentions will be not be wasted or ignored. Though you may not be present at Mass, the intention will still go before the Throne of the Lord at each Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, even if a congregation is not present.
Lenten Regulations on Fast and Abstinence: Abstinence from meat is observed on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and ALL Fridays of Lent by all Catholics 14 years of age and older; Fasting is observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday by all who are 18 years of age but not yet 59 years of age (unless there are medical issues). Those bound by this rule may take only one full meal or two smaller meals are permitted as necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs. Eating solid foods between meals is not permitted. The special Paschal fast and abstinence are observed on Good Friday. On these days, Christians prepare themselves by their disciplines in anticipation of the renewal of their baptismal commitment on Easter. During Lent, the Church encourages attendance at daily Mass, self-imposed times of fasting, and generosity to local, national, and worldwide programs of sharing.
How do we get ready for Easter without public Masses? We will have to have Palm Sunday without fresh palms, and the Triduum without all the events at the parish. We are all being forced to find new ways to live life in this strange time of separation. Here is a Free 14-Day Online Retreat to help you prepare for Holy Week at home.
This Easter is an Easter like no other in the last century in light of the COVID-19 crisis. Many people may feel that we are seeking after a distant or unapproachable God, but in fact it is God who is in search of us. Our heavenly Father is extending to each of us an invitation to a personal and intimate relationship with him through the mystery of the Paschal Mystery: the life, suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus. In a time of so much uncertainty, and even fear, we believe that God will use this Easter in a powerful way to bring people back into relationship with him. In the remaining days before Holy Thursday, CCO's Founders André and Angèle Regnier will release a daily video reflection to help accompany you on the journey towards Easter.
- 15 to 20 minutes per day.
- New content to be released each day.
- These reflections are designed to be appropriate for anyone, including older children and teenagers. We suggest gathering the family together to share in this retreat experience. Or perhaps you can connect digitally with a few friends to enter into the experience together...respecting proper social distancing as instructed by your local health officials, of course!
- Scripture passages to read and reflect on.
- Reflection questions to help you go deeper in your own prayer.
Additional resources that might be of interest for your own prayer and study.
