Welcome All! Bienvenue!
STATIONS of the CROSS: Fridays at 3 p.m., St. Norbert
Fast and Abstinence: Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence. The norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken, but not to equal a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon those from age 14 onwards. If possible, the fast on Good Friday is continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday night) as the “paschal fast” to honor the suffering and death of the Lord, Jesus, and prepare ourselves to share more fully and to celebrate more readily His Resurrection.
"We are . . .
. . . three communities in the rural Northeast Kingdom of Vermont towns of Hardwick, Craftsbury, and Greensboro Bend who've come together to pray as one Parish Family. In a land both breathtakingly beautiful and at times harsh, community is as necessary as it is wide spread. Many families in our parish have been with us for generations, some just a few months. We all have our part to play".
