Lent events in and around the diocese
I, Bishop James P. Powers, an- nounce a special dispensation for Catholics from adhering to the law of abstinence for Friday, March 17, 2023. This Lenten dispensation allows the faithful of the Diocese of Superior and any visitors or trav- elers who may be present within the diocese to celebrate the Feast of St. Patrick without adhering to the obligation of abstinence from meat. In observance of this Friday of Lent, I encourage those who utilize the dis- pensation to perform another act of penance (self-denial, charity, prayer, etc.) on some other day of the second week of Lent. Most Rev. James P. Powers Bishop of Superior
n Tuesday, March 14, at 6 p.m., Pastor Fr. Jerry Ha- gen is inviting lost, hurt, marginalized and disaffected Catholics - as well as active Cath- olics - to an evening of conversa- tion and listening at Holy Family Catholic Church in Woodruff. The gathering will be held in the parish hall. Fr. Hagen's purpose is to have an open dialogue about the church and any issues that might be keeping Catholics from being engaged and active in their faith. He hopes to create a welcoming, healing environment; comments and/or questions will be accepted either verbally or anonymously written on note cards at the gathering. The pastor assures that those who attend will be welcomed warmly and without judgement. He also en- courages active Catholics to reach out and invite anyone they might know who has drifted away from their Catholic faith.
