Ember days this week: Wednesday the 3rd, Friday the 5th, and Saturday this week: days of fast and partial abstinence (full abstinence on Friday). All Catholics 21-59 years old inclusively are bound to the fast and all over seven years old are bound to the rules of abstinence. 

The significance of the days of the week are that Wednesday was the day Christ was betrayed, Friday was the day He was crucified, and Saturday was the day He was entombed.

According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, the purpose of Ember Days, “besides the general one intended by all prayer and fasting, was to thank God for the gifts of nature, to teach men to make use of them in moderation, and to assist the needy.”

June 7th, Trinity Sunday is the last day to Fulfill your Easter duty, receive Holy Communion: June 7th.  Confessions will be heard before both Sunday Masses this day.

Please note to assist at the live stream Facebook Mass will be at 9:00 a.m. Sunday Mass for CTK


Oh Jesus, I turn toward the holy tabernacle where You live hidden for love of me. I love you, O my God. I cannot receive you in Holy Communion. Come, nevertheless, and visit me with Your grace. Come spiritually into my heart. Purify it. Sanctify it. Render it like unto Your own. Amen.
