Great opportunity for priests, deacons, parish staff and lay leaders who are involved, or wish to be involved, in helping to promote Stewardship in the Church. We invite you all to attend the Western Canada and Region XII Conference beginning Friday, June 9 through Sunday, June 11, 2017. The Conference will be at Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel, 7551 Westminster Highway, Richmond, BC. Please see attachment for stewardship conference tracks.
In view of the fact that St. Patrick's Day this year falls on a Friday of Lent, I hereby grant a dispensation from the Church's law of abstinence for all in the Diocese of Yakima. I also request that all who avail themselves of this dispensation perform some other work of penance, for example:
We do penance in imitation of Jesus' fast of 40 days in the desert, eager to draw nearer to him in love.
