Optional Lenten Dispensation 

For those among the Fry Lodge Faithful who do not know, the Catholic tradition requires abstinence from meat on Fridays during Lent. Unless, that is, one lives in the Seattle Archdiocese, which is granting an optional dispensation from this obligation because St. Patrick’s Day lands on a Friday this year. Corned beef and cabbage it is!

    Our priest did not inform us at St. Francis in LaQuinta of our Arch Bishop dispensation I think because he is from Scottland.

    The Archbishop of Omaha also gave us a dispensation….. Omaha is big Irish community there would have been a rebellion…..
