We are a Eucharistic People.



Lenten Regulations

Each year the Lord Jesus calls the entire Church to a

special season of penance and renewal. As we begin this

holy time of Lent, we should reflect on our need for

conversion of heart, prayer, charitable works and penance.

The season of Lent extends this year from Ash Wednesday,

February 18, to the Mass of the Lord's Supper, April 2,


1. Everyone 14 years of age or over is bound to abstain

from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all

Fridays of Lent.

2. Everyone 18 years of age and under 59 years of age is

also bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

3. On these two days of fast and abstinence, only one full

meatless meal is allowed. The other meatless meals,

sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to

one's needs, but altogether they should not equal another

full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted on these

two days, but liquids, including milk and fruit juices are

allowed. When health or ability to work would be

seriously affected, the obligation of the law is modified.

Because Lent is a special season for all Christians, we

should not lightly excuse ourselves from these penitential


4. To completely disregard the law of fast and abstinence is

seriously sinful.




The Men's Club and the Ladies of St. Henry
will again be sponsoring a fish fry each Friday
during Lent.
The fish 
fry is held  every Friday during Lenten from 4-7:30 p.m. in the Msgr. Voss Parish Center.

Our famous fried cod will be available along with baked salmon and your favorite side items. 

We need baked goods to fill our dessert table.

If you 
would like to donate a baked item, please bring it to the parish center before 4 p.m. Friday.  To Volunteer
