February 17, 2013 1st Sunday of lent

All events open to UT and UCC community. RCIA Rites today Sunday, February 17 In what concrete ways are you living your faith through service to others? We hear in the Gospel of Luke that Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert for 40 days. Jesus trust in his Father sustains him as he is tempted by the devil. As Lent begins, in what ways do you need the strength of Jesus Spirit to sustain you in your faith journey?

Today, several members of the UCC community will sign their names in the Book of the Elect (the Rite of Enrollment). Others will accept the Call to Continuing Conversion, and all will be sent (the Rite of Sending) for presentation to Bishop Joe, who will officially proclaim them to be God's chosen people (the Rite of Election). Please pray for all those who are becoming Catholic this Easter!

Generally, all Catholics 1859 years of age are obliged to fast on Good Friday. In addition, Catholics aged 14 years and older must abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all Fridays during Lent. Fasting is only having one full meal. Some food is permitted at the other usual meal times as long as they do not equal another full meal. Abstinence forbids the use of meat, but not eggs, milk products, seasonings and condiments made from animal fat, or products made from meat juices, such as gravies or broths.
