The Shrine of Ars, France, has entrusted to the Knights of Columbus the major relic of St. Jean Vianney’s incorrupt heart for a national tour in the U.S., from November 2018 through early June 2019.
The Knights of Columbus welcomes this special opportunity to offer for veneration a major relic of the patron of parish priests, whose holiness and integrity is a model for clergy and laity alike.

Call to Action
The Montana Catholic Conference (MCC) testified before the House Judiciary Committee urging support for this bill stating, in part:
"It is tragic and gravely wrong that courts have decided to only allow states to protect some unborn children and not all of them. However, if courts continue to insist on basing protections for the unborn on certain stages or levels of human development, then the ability to feel pain provides a more reasonable and well-founded basis than does viability."

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for Catholics.
In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.
For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59 (exempt are individuals with health concerns).
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. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.
Prayer to St. Charles Borromeo
O Saintly reformer,
animator of spiritual renewal of priests and religious, you organized true seminaries and wrote a standard catechism. Inspire all religious teachers and authors of catechetical books. Move them to love and transmit only that which can form true followers of the Teacher who was divine.
St. Charles Borromeo Parish is dedicated to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, to maintain the worship of God, to inspire in all persons a love of Christ, a passion for righteousness, and a consciousness of their duties to God and all God’s children.
