Fast and Abstain during Lent
Everyone 14 years of age or older is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, all the Fridays of Lent and Good Friday. Everyone 18 or older, and under 59 years of age, is bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, only one full meatless meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. Catholics should not lightly excuse themselves from these prescribed minimal penitential practices.

Postcards to MN Senator/Representatives
There are at least three other pro-abortion bills advancing through the MN legislative process. One would allow a baby who is born alive after an attempted abortion to be left to die without medical treatment. Another bill would strip state funding from pregnancy resource centers, which provide loving care and abortion alternatives to pregnant mothers and their babies. If you've already mailed your postcards to your State Representative and Senator, thank you! Legislators tell us they have received many of the cards, which makes an impact. If you haven’t yet, there are postcards available at church entrances.
Prayer Partners are requested for Confirmation candidates this spring—envelopes are in the entrance of each church. Take one and start praying for a candidate who will be confirmed May 21. Every prayer helps, and yours is needed! A prayer partner prays for their confirmation candidate each day for the graces he or she needs to grow closer to God, to overcome their struggles, and to get the most out of their confirmation formation. Prayer also helps them fight any temptations to not listen to the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

St. Columbkill Parishioners:
The four beautiful statues at the front of our church will be undergoing restoration this year. The estimate to restore the St. Patrick and the Sacred Heart of Jesus statues is between $2,000-$2,400 per statue.
The statue of Mary and the statue of Joseph may cost less to restore but we don‟t have an actual estimate on those at this time. There will also be a charge of around $500 to have the company pick up and deliver the statues. The St. Patrick statue restoration will be donated by Francis McNamara memorial funds (per his request). We would gladly welcome other memorial donations or any monetary contributions towards the restoration fund. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Fr. Kasel or Bob and Cindy Eppen.
Thank You to all who helped make the Confirmation Receiving Mass and Reception a lovely event: the ninth grade families for providing and serving refreshments, CCW for providing carnations and boutonnieres and for all those who helped decorate the Church. A special thank you to Taylor Dowden and Fr. McCabe for their teaching and spiritual guidance.
