MARDI GRAS - Mardi Gras ("Fat Tuesday") and Carnival ("Farewell to Meat") precede Ash Wednesday and Lent around the world. What's important is that we let our feasting anticipate our fasting. ASH WEDNESDAY - May our fasting and abstinence hollow out in us a place for deeper desires and an attentiveness to hear the cry of the poor. May our self-denial turn our hearts to You and give us a new freedom for generous service to others.

THINK of Me is the theme for the 2020 Appeal in support of Catholic Charities and the Fund for the Faith.
College can be a time of profound searching - both in an academic and personal sense, and campus ministries, like the Newman Center at Buffalo State College, can often act as a safe space for students to echo such questions and find a sense of belonging. As one student said, "In college, it can be difficult to find a place where you belong. Many seek out different organizations for different reasons, so often in an attempt to feel part of something greater, something they believe in. It was very easy to feel part of Newman because everyone there was so inviting." Your gift to the Fund for the Faith through the 2020 Appeal helps support campus ministries like the Newman Center, and in turn, supports the faith and spirituality of hundreds of young people in Western New York. Make a secure donation online at ccwny.org/donation or by calling (716) 218-1400. Think of Me.

Our 10:30 Mass can be streamed at anytime in the McCabe Room. Please be sure to contact the office ahead of time so the equipment can be set up.
An elevator and nearby rest room make this an option for those who wish to attend Mass but have difficulty getting into the church.
Rather than miss Mass because of active little ones, parents may wish to bring their youngsters to the Resource Room where they can share in the service with them without the constraints of a pew. There is room to move around and a library of children's bible stories for them to enjoy.
All are welcome. Please suggest this to family and friends who may be looking for an opportunity, even temporarily, to attend Mass at Holy Family.
