Note:  The Feast of St. Patrick is a Solemnity within the Archdiocese of SF (since St. Patrick is the Principal Co-Patron of the Archdiocese). March 17, 2017 is a Friday. While normally Lenten observance requires abstinence from meat on the Fridays of Lent, canon law includes the exception: “unless a solemnity should fall on a Friday” (Canon 1251); therefore within the bounds of the Archdiocese of SF, the faithful are not required to abstain from meat on March 17, 2017

FAITH IN ACTION (PIA)

Our faith values call us to take a stand with the poor and vulnerable. So for the next 100 days, FaithInAction will be offering a series of trainings and actions to help communities develop Strategies of Hope. The first set of trainings are designed to help congregations and communities respond to immigrant needs and build a Rapid Response network. We can bring hope to this moment by building and strengthening relationships and preparing ourselves to act in more and more powerful ways. To get involved, see the calendar below.

LOW GLUTEN COMMUNION HOSTS AVAILABLE

We now have low gluten (less than .002% gluten) communion hosts available for people who have severe food allergies or celiac disease. Procedure for receiving these hosts at communion time is to identify yourself to one of the acolytes prior to Mass, or when you come up in the communion line, tell the extraordinary minister or the priest that you would like the special host.
