Carnival: Will you say goodbye to something for Lent?02-23-2020Fr. John Sims Baker
We may be more familiar with the French term Mardi Gras -- Fat Tuesday, but in many cultures the period leading up to Lent is called Carnival. That word literally means "goodbye to meat." We have a little relic of this banishment of meat in the abstinence from meat that we practice on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent. (Isn't it interesting that everyone from environmentalists to your doctor is recommending going light on meat? Maybe the Church has been guiding us well all along!) It is OK to celebrate a bit before Lent begins, especially if you intend to keep a good Lent, but keep the emphasis on your interior preparation. What can you say goodbye to that will help you to grow in the love of God and neighbor?

Do you have palm branches around your house from Palm Sunday? These have been blessed and are sacramentals. Each year we burn these palms to create ashes for Ash Wednesday.
Please bring in your old palms and leave them in the basket near the water fountains in the narthex.
The Lenten fish frys are starting on Feb 28 and we need your delicious goodies! Please consider helping out the Awesome Bakers by providing a dessert during the fish frys. All goodies are welcome! If someone needs to do service hours, they can also help out at the dessert table.
