Religious Education Classes (CCD) - In case of inclement weather and to see if religious education classes have been cancelled, please click on this: Religious Education.

LENT:  Ash Wednesday we began  the forty day journey toward the Triduum (The Three Days) with the annual discipline of fasting, praying and giving alms.  Ash Wednesday (February 14) and Good Friday (March 30) are days of fast and abstinence.  All Fridays in Lent (February 16, 23; March 2, 9, 16, 23) are days of abstinence.  FASTING refers to only one full meal, with two small meals and no eating otherwise for the day.  ABSTINENCE refers to not eating meat at all during the day.  All who have reached their 14th year are obliged to ABSTAIN.  The Church directs the holy FAST to all those in their 18th year until their 60th year (Canon 1252).  The ancient practice of fasting and abstaining can occur throughout other days in Lent.  This is not obligatory and can take a variety of forms distinct from food.

PIEROGIES - During the Fridays of Lent (except Good Friday), OLV will be selling pierogies by Rosie's Pierogies. Cost is $8.00 a dozen. The options available will be: freshly made with butter, freshly made with butter and onion and bagged freshly made plain. The frozen options will be frozen plain, jalapeno flavored and bacon flavored.  They will be sold from the front of the school auditorium from 3:00 to 5:00pm, or until we run out. 

STATIONS OF  THE CROSS: We hold Stations of the Cross on Fridays at 1:20pm (except March 9) and at 7:00pm during Lent.
