The Beginning Experience Weekend on April 6-8, 2018, is a wonderful healing opportunity for those suffering the loss of a spouse either through death or separation/divorce. Those who have attended this weekend attest to the new hope they have received and the powerful safe and loving environment they found in the experience. Under the sponsorship of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Office of Marriage and Family Life, this International program has helped thousands navigate the road through grief.

FRIDAYS OF LENT: DAYS OF ABSTINENCE FROM EATING MEAT

In the Catholic Church, All Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence from eating meat (mammals and fowl).

On Good Friday we abstain from eating meat and we also fast.  All Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 (whose health enables them to do so) are permitted to consume only one full meal, which may be supplemented by two smaller meals, which together should not equal the full meal. Some Catholics will go beyond the minimum obligations demanded by the Church and undertake a complete fast, or a bread and water fast.
