Dear Pastors,


In honor of all the Irish from the Emerald Isle in the United States and in our Diocese and in recognition of St. Patrick, I am granting a dispensation from abstinence on Friday, March 17, 2017. However all who take advantage of this privilege should be reminded that we are in the Season of Lent and that it would be well to choose another day in the week to abstain from meat in the spirit of Lenten penance. Lent is a time for prayer, self-denial and almsgiving especially on Fridays.


+Stephen Blaire
