We, the people of Our Lady of the Visitation parish, believe in Jesus Christ and embrace His teachings.  Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we embrace His call to be the Light of the World through Word, Worship, Community Building and Service to all.


The people of Our Lady of the Visitation Church, inspired by Jesus' and Mary's example of openness to the will of God the Father and the Holy Spirit, desire to be faithful stewards of God's gifts to us; and, believe our mission is: To understand the word of God through study, To become examples of Christ's love in the world by caring for one another through communal sharing and service, and to celebrate our joy of understanding and caring through sacraments and prayer.

1. The days of both Fast and Abstinence during Lent are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. If possible, the fast on Good Friday is continued until the Easter Vigil (on Holy Saturday night) as the “Paschal Fast” to honor the suffering and death of the Lord Jesus and to prepare ourselves to share more fully and to celebrate more readily His Resurrection. The other Fridays of Lent are days of Abstinence. On a day of Fast, only (1) full meal is permitted. Those between the ages of 18 and 59  are obligated to fast. On a day of Abstinence, no meat may be eaten. Those who have reached the age of 14 are obligated by the law of abstinence.


2. The obligation to observe the laws of Fast and Abstinence “substantially,” or as a whole, is a serious obligation.


3. The Fridays of the year outside of Lent are designated as days of penance, but each individual may substitute for the traditional abstinence from meat some other practice of voluntary self-denial as penance.


4. The time for fulfilling the Paschal Precept (Easter Duty*) extends from the First Sunday of Lent, February 26, to the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, June 4. *Canon 920, 1. All the faithful, after they have been initiated into the Most Holy Eucharist, are bound by the obligation of receiving Communion at least once a year.
