Welcome to St. Mary's Church

Welcome to the St. Mary's Parish  website.  It is our hope that through these pages all our visitors will be given a window into the life of a vibrant, active, inclusive and faith-filled community.  As the pastor of St. Mary's, I have the great joy of witnessing the many ways our faith community prays together and takes an active role in being an outward sign of Christ in the local community.  Regardless of whether you have been a member of St.Mary's  for many years, you are new to our community or you are just stopping in for a visit, please know that you are welcome here.  Take some time to explore the content of our website and learn more about St Mary's Parish.  We are always happy to see new faces, so if you would like to stop by and visit our parish, it would be a blessing for us to meet you.

Lenten Regulations
Diocese of Joliet-in-Illinois

Fast and Abstinence Regulations

  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 and to abstain on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
  3. On Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, 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, in addition to following the Lenten regulations, are strongly urged to develop and follow a program of voluntary self-denial, serious prayer, and a performance of works of charity and mercy.
