Special Dispensation - March 17

This year, Friday of the third week of Lent corresponds with St. Patrick's Day (March 17) which is traditionally an important
occasion in the lives of so many of our Diocese. Having taken into consideration that is would serve the spiritual good of the
faithful, Bishop Bonnar has granted to the faithful of the Diocese of Youngstown, as well as any visitor, a dispensation
from the obligation of abstinence from meat on March 17. You are urged to make another act of sacrifice of charity:

Stations of the Cross, Rosary, Adoration or giving of your time in a charitable way.
