Today is the 5th Sunday of Lent. This will be followed by 'Passion Sunday,' (Palm Sunday) and finally 'the Holy Week' that will reach its peak on 'Easter Sunday.' The central theme of today’s Scripture Readings is the resurrection and the life. The three readings of today fit beautifully together as they tell us of death yielding to a new way of life.READ MORE

Our Bishop Callahan has asked me to share with you about the decree pertaining to St. Patrick’s Day, Fri, Mar 17.
“The disciplinary practice of abstaining from meat on the Fridays in the Lent is an important dimension of the penitential nature of the season. This year, the feast of St. Patrick, Fri, Mar 17, falls on Friday in Lent. Given the many celebrations that occurs on this day in accord with the norm of law, I here with grant to all Catholics of the Diocese of La Crosse as well as all present here that day, a dispensation from abstinence from meat and meat products. I encourage all who make use of this dispensation to engage in another sacrificial or Charitable act that day”. - by Most Reverend Willian Patrick Callahan. Still if we want, we can be abstaining from meat on that day. The point here is that a special provision is available on that Friday.READ MORE
