Lent 2024

Lenten Fasting & Abstinence

Catholics practice fasting and abstinence during the season of Lent in remembrance of Jesus’ suffering and in anticipation of the joy of Easter.

Together with increased prayer and works of charity, fasting is a way to help make Lent a fruitful time of purification and refocus, leading to a deeper intimacy with and tender dependency upon God.

The minimum requirements for all Catholics are:

  • FAST on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
  • ABSTINENCE every Friday during Lent AND on above fast days.

To fast means consuming one meal, meatless. Two smaller meals which together do not equal a full meal may be included.

Abstinence means refraining from all flesh meats including beef, poultry, pork, and other mammals. Seafood, eggs, and dairy are permissible.

Exceptions

Those outside the age requirements, those physically, mentally, or chronically ill, and pregnant or nursing mothers are excused. Those so afflicted are encouraged to choose a different sacrifice to foster spiritual growth during this season.

Liturgy of the Hours

Before each Mass during Lent, the Lay Carmelites will lead the Liturgy of the Hours, the time-honored communal prayer of the Church.

  • ALL20 min. before each Mass

Rosary

Join us in strewing roses before our Lady’s feet before each Mass during Lent, and during the week:

  • ALL45 min. before each Mass
  • QA | Fridays @ 2:30 pm

Once a week, join Scott Hahn as he delivers an inspiring series of 8 talks based on his new book Catholics in Exile – filmed with a live audience at the new St. Paul Center headquarters.

This program is completely free. The St. Paul center is offering free access to all of their other online resources during Lent this year, as well.

Special Announcements

St. Joseph Confirmation Class Fundraiser

Laundry Pod BINGO!

Sunday, March 10

Come help our Confirmandi serve the Serenity House of Clallam County!

Join us after the 11:30 am Mass: free admission, free bingo card, free lunch (and dessert!). Five straight-line bingo games will win prizes, and one cover-all game wins a grand prize of a $50 gift certificate to the Oak Table restaurant in Sequim. This is not a gambling event; there will be no cash prizes.

Participants are humbly requested to donate the largest package of laundry pods possible, or make a cash donation (which will be used to purchase laundry pods). Laundry pod donations will be welcomed in a box in the narthex beginning Mar. 2 through Mar. 17.

Please contact Dcn. Dan Powers for more info.

A word from Sharon Maggard, Executive Director, Serenity House of Clallam County

“Serenity House of Clallam County appreciates the churches’ help with providing laundry pods. Our shelter provides a place to stay for 110 to 120 community members per day and served 639 community members in 2023.  We provide free use of a washer and dryer at our site from 8:00 AM and to 11:00 PM daily.  This laundry is used by 15 to 20 guests per day or between 5,475 to 7,300 loads of laundry per year.

Having clean laundry is the most difficult task when a person is homeless with no money. Many laundry facilities require a credit card or a phone application payment or at least six dollars to do laundry. Most of these requirements the homeless do not have.

Serenity House of Clallam County understands that shower and clean clothes can change a day or attitude, correct a health condition, or help with being employed. As a community, this free service from our agency with your support is crucial to those who live homeless. Thank you.”

Did you know?

In Tanzania, children born with a disability are often kept locked up in homes, hidden away from public. It is a common belief that a child with a disability is cursed – or that his or her family did something wrong and are being punished by evil spirits or God. Because of this, many fathers and family members will abandon their wife and child upon the birth of a baby with a disability – leaving a woman to support herself and her children.

Most children with disabilities are not allowed to attend government schools.

Support Huruma School

local missionaries serve Tanzanian children

St. Joseph parishioner Anna Johnson is currently serving as a Maryknoll Lay Missioner with her husband, Kyle, and three children in Mwanza, Tanzania on a multi-year mission.

Maryknoll, a Catholic non-profit mission movement, has been the heart and hands of the U.S. Catholic Church’s overseas mission work for more than 100 years. Anna currently ministers as a nurse at Huruma Special Education Unit. “Huruma” means compassion in Swahili. This school was founded in 2004 by another Maryknoll Lay Missioner, Bertha Haas. It currently serves over 65 children with disabilities.

Huruma School offers these children a chance to learn, receive basic medical care and physical therapy, and eat simple but nutritious meals 4 times/week. For many of these children and their families – Huruma literally changes their life from being invisible and neglected – to being seen and cared for.

Huruma School runs 100% on donations – the majority of these coming from Catholic Churches in the Northwest where founder Bertha Haas currently resides. 100% of your donation goes to support Huruma School (no overhead or administrative costs as we are run by an all-volunteer team).

Support Our Work

If you are interested in supporting Huruma School – please direct 501c3 tax-deductible donations directly to Bertha Haas.

Archdiocese News

Partners in the Gospel UPDATES

Partners in the Gospel is a strategic pastoral planning effort taking place across the Archdiocese of Seattle to re-invigorate and renew our local Catholic Church. The Archdiocese continues their work to communicate and address the urgent need for change.

Our Parish Family

  • Our parish family will include St. Joseph in Sequim; St. Anne in Forks, St. Thomas the Apostle Mission in Clallam Bay, St. Mary Star of the Sea in Port Townsend, and Queen of Angels in Port Angeles.
  • This new family will go into effect on July 1, 2024.
  • Over the next three years, the five churches will come together to eventually become one canonical parish.
  • This does not mean just one church building or campus.
  • The pastor and parochial vicars for this parish family will be announced later this spring, and they will begin July 1.
  • Currently, the plan is for one pastor and two parochial vicars.
  • Once the new pastor is in place he will work in consultation with the Archdiocese on any changes to Mass times, councils, services, staffing etc. This does not mean that there will be changes.
  • The Archdiocese will provide a “new parish family liaison” to help with the transition.

What parishioners can do

  • Continue to pray for this renewal effort, and specifically pray for the members of our new parish family. Look to what role you can play in making our new parish family succeed. We have prayer cards in the church and office for you to take home.
  • Lastly, please stay engaged:
    • Sign up for the Partners in the Gospel UPDATE newsletter (scroll to the bottom of that page to sign up).
    • Read Northwest Catholic magazine (registered parishioners receive this subscription for free; you can also read online)
    • Participate in upcoming prayer and fellowship opportunities.
    • If you have questions or comments about this process, please visit the Partners in the Gospel website – https://archseattle.org/partners/ Check here and in the bulletin for updates on our parish family, or contact our office with questions or comments:(360)457-2351 or email office@clallamcatholic.org.

Important Dates

  • Feb. 3-4: Final parish family plan released.
  • July 2024: Parish families, under the leadership of one pastor, will begin.

Called to Serve as Christ Campaign

Begun in 2019, this campaigns funds retirement and medical needs of priests and women religious, and supports individual parishes in our Archdiocese. Starting in Oct. 2020, a three-year pledge period began. Each parish will receive a share of funds donated.

Thank you so much for your generosity! With their share, Queen of Angels will upgrade the school heating; St. Joseph will make needed remodels to the rectory. Click the button below to learn more or add your pledge today!
