Lent Begins - Ash Wednesday February 22, 2023

Fast and Abstinence During Lent

All persons who have reached their 14th birthday are bound by the rule of abstinence.  In addition, all adults are bound by the rule of fasting from their 18th to their 60th year. 

Ash Wednesday and the Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence which means to avoid eating meat and meat products.  We do this in rememberance of Jesus giving up his flesh on the cross.  In addition, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting - eating only one main meal and two lesser meals which together do not equal the main meal.

Who is St. Roman?

Did you know that August 9th is the Feast of our patron Saint?  St. Roman is relatively unknown.  We do not know his actual name.  He originally was referred to as the Roman Saint and later the name just reversed and became St. Roman.

He was a policeman, correctional officer, civil servant, who was serving in Rome at the time when St. Lawrence had been imprisoned for his refusal to surrender the treasury of the Roman Church to the Empire.

As Roman beheld the endurance and fortitude of St. Lawrence during his persecution and marveled at his virtuous courage and heroic patience, St. Roman was so inspired that he approached the Holy Martyr and asked to be received in the Faith.  St. Lawrence first gave the necessary instructions to St. Roman and then he baptized him in the prison.  This brave young man then publicly proclaimed his conversion to Christianity to his fellow policemen, and he was immediately arrested and convicted.

St. Roman thereupon received the crown of martyrdom by being beheaded on August 9, 258, the day BEFORE the execution of St. Lawrence.
