Sallie Latkovich, CSJ, D.Min.

Tuesday, February 26 - 7:00 p.m. - Great Hall

Please join us as we host Sr. Sallie Latkovich of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph (CSJ), as she speaks to us of the “genius of woman” as seen in feminine styles of holiness, which are an essential means of reflecting God’s holiness in this world. Sr. Sally will base her talk on Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Gaudete et Exultate (March 19, 2018).  Sr. Sallie’s experience and interest is in adult education and faith formation. Until recently, Sr. Sallie was the Director of CTU’s Biblical Study and Travel Program, which includes study and travel for graduate credit, as well as the Holy Land retreat.  Sr. Sallie has her Master of Arts from St. Norbert College, and her Doctor of Ministry (D.Min.) from the Graduate Theological Foundation. Please join us on Tuesday evening, February 26 for a delightful session with Sr. Sallie Latkovich, CSJ, D.Min!

LENTEN REGULATIONS AND THE EASTER TRIDUUM

  1. Everyone 14 years of age or over is bound to abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent.
  2. Everyone 18 years of age and under 59 years of age is 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.  Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but together 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 law does not oblige.
  4. To disregard completely the law of fast and abstinence is seriously sinful.
  5. Lent is the principal season of penance in the Christian year.  All of the faithful are strongly urged to develop and follow a program of voluntary self-denial (in addition to following the Lenten regulations), serious prayer, and a performance of works of charity and mercy.

Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross, also known as the Way of the Cross is a traditional Lenten devotion.  Stations of the Cross serve as an excellent way to tell the Good Friday story.  The stations are places to stop and think about what is depicted in that scene at that place.  There are typically fourteen or fifteen stations highlighting Jesus’ walk to the Cross. At St. Elizabeth Seton, various groups will portray the Stations of the Cross for the parish. 

  • Monday, March 11 at 7:00pm - 7th and 8th Grade Religious Education. 
  • Thursday, March 21 at 7:00pm - 5th Grade Religious Education.  Simple Soup Supper in the Great Hall at 6:00pm.
  • Friday, April 12 at 3:00pm - Stations of the Cross for Healing.
  • Good Friday, April 19 at 3:00pm - Knights of Columbus

All parishioners are invited to each or any of these opportunities for this special devotion.

Has Your Phone Number Changed?
