Lent begins with Ash Wednesday. This is not a Holy Day of Obligation, but as Fr. Steve says it is a Holy Day. Mass times are:
Don’t forget to observe the Lenten fast and abstinence. Here are the basics: we abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays during Lent, and we fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Fasting means no more than one full meal and two half-meals, and no snacks in between. See the 3/2 bulletin for full details.
Chili Cookoff and Bingo
Please join the Knights of Columbus On Saturday 3/8 after the 5:30 pm Mass for another exciting night of fellowship and fun.

Let your parishioners be the judge!

CYO Camp Fundraiser
As a member of the CYO family, you have personally witnessed the magic of camp: whether it was making a new best friend, accomplishing a challenge you thought was impossible, or connecting to your faith. Ending the day with a campfire has always been a special part of the CYO experience, a chance to have fun, reflect and sing. Sadly, the Camp Don Bosco campfire circle is in danger of closing for good: it is currently located on a hillside that is eroding and the infrastructure itself is also breaking down. We are raising $40,000 to rebuild the circle. You are invited to Camp on March 15th from 12-4 PM for our Round the Campfire Fundraiser. For more information or to donate online go to www.firstgiving.com/cyo. Together we can keep the fire alive in the hearts and memories of all of the future campers. Here at St. Philomena’s, if you have questions or need further information contact Dee Jenkins at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you and God bless!
(You must PRE-register with Dee in order to attend. There are a limited number of spots available. Sign-ups for this event close on Sunday, March 9th. Thank you!!)
