The Season of Lent, Ash Wednesday and Fridays of Lent

Entering into the Season of Lent

At St. Regis Parish we are inviting everyone to focus on the Fridays of Lent and to choose some type of prayer or penance on that day offered for the spiritual renewal of St. Regis Parish (see below).  In addition, here are three websites which can help you keep the Lenten season in focus for all six weeks.
