All are asked to fast (one main meal only) on February 22 (for Ash Wednesday) and Good Friday to April 7. Fasting at other times is recommended but left to each person to decide. We are expected to abstain from meat on the Fridays of Lent, yet we are encouraged to also fast by taking only one meal on that day, and by ancient tradition fasting and abstinence is also
recommended on the Wednesdays of Lent for those who wish to do more.
When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal.
Please consider fasting in the broader sense of self denial by forgoing other extras such as dining out, imbibing in expensive wines or liquors, giving up a daily Coffee Shop stop or other entertainments in order to put someresources aside to be shared with the poor. As is our custom at CTK, we will collect the fruits of our Lenten sacrifices during the Holy Thursday Evening Mass and offer these alms to three charities: Food for the Poor, Catholic Relief Services, and the Matthew 25 Fund of our own parish.

This Lent, foster a daily practice of spiritual calm where God is at the center. Living Lent Daily is a daily e-mail series delivering fresh reflections based on the Scriptures of Lent. Each day’s message includes a quotation from the day’s Scripture readings and a brief reflection to spur meditation, prayer, and self-examination.
The messages also include suggestions for further exploration of Lenten themes through additional online articles and prayers.
Ignation Prayer Adventure
This is an adapted version of the Spiritual Exercises. Materials are modified from the longer retreat in The Ignatian Adventure by Kevin O’Brien, SJ.
The eight-week schedule makes it perfectly timed as a Lent and Easter retreat, but the adventure can be started at any time, on your schedule. Join in a flexible experience of daily prayer and reflection. Choose to commit to a regular period of prayer each day, or start with only one day a week. Use as much or as little of the material as helps you in your Lenten journey.
This Lent, become a spiritual athlete and join Tim for The Ignatian Workout for Lent. Each Monday he’ll share audio reflections accompanied by suggestions for prayer and action. Based on the book of the same name, the online retreat begins the week of Ash Wednesday and continues through Easter Week.
Sacred Space is inspired by the spirituality of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, a sixteenth-century Basque, whose insights into God’s working with the human heart have been of great assistance to countless people over the centuries and are found more helpful than ever today.
Sacred Space is a joint apostolate of the Irish Province of the Society of Jesus – the Jesuits, and Loyola Press. The site originated in the offices of the Jesuit Communication Centre in Ireland in 1999.
