Hi Father Dan:

I HAVE BEEN AWAY FROM THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FOR SOME TIME NOW – HOW DO I COME HOME AND BECOME ACTIVE AGAIN?
•    Recognize that your Father in Heaven wants you to come home. Regardless of what has happened in your life or how long you've been away, you can always come
home to the Catholic Church. And our Lord wants you to come home. Think about the Prodigal Son. The young man had walked away from his father. But eventually, he
had a change of heart and tentatively made his way home, full of doubts about whether his father would accept him back. The story has a happy ending. Not only did the
father welcome his son home again, but he threw a party in celebration of his son's return!

•   Call Father Berg and schedule a good visit. He would love to meet with you to hear about your journey home and to help your transition in becoming active again. During
this visit, any concerns or issues you had could be discussed. As well, he could determine whether you need any help with irregular sacramental situations, (for example:
getting your marriage con-validated if you were married outside the Church, addressing unbaptized or unconfirmed children, etc).

Lenten Regulations: During the season of Lent, Catholics are called to take part in certain
days of fasting and abstinence.  The Rules for Roman Catholics in the United States for
"fasting and abstinence":  Every person 14 years of age or older must abstain from meat
(and items made with meat) on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and all the Fridays of Lent.

  • Every person between the age of 18 and 59 (your 59th birthday begins your 60th
    year) must fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
  • Every person 14 years of age or older must abstain from meat on all other Fridays of
    the year, unless he or she substitutes some other form of penance for abstinence.
  • When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal.  Two smaller meals may also
    be taken, but not to equal a full meal.  
  • FRIDAY
