St. Lawrence Martyr Church on Facebook

What is a St. Joseph’s Table? The tradition
began in Sicily, Italy many years ago when a
severe drought caused a terrible famine. The
faithful prayed to St. Joseph to intercede on their
behalf, and the rains came causing their crops to
flourish! The feast includes a direct act of public
charity.
Join in the celebration and a fantastic meal
of spaghetti, salad, bread and more! Extras
include meatballs, sausage, dessert wine
and soft drinks.

St Joseph Table

Archbishop José H. Gomez, in accord with the Code of Canon Law (canon 87), has granted a dispensation to all Roman Catholics in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles from the obligation to abstain from meat on the Memorial of Saint Patrick - Friday, March 17, 2017 since St. Patrick is the secondary patron saint of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

The United States Bishops prescribe as a minimal obligation that all persons who are fourteen years of age and older are bound to abstain from eating meat on the Fridays of Lent. This is a corporate gesture of penance observed by all the members of the Church in the United States.

In certain circumstances, such as the coincidence of Saint Patrick's Day and a Friday of Lent, the Diocesan Bishop may grant such a dispensation from the observance of the corporate gesture of penance on a penitential day. However, if a Catholic makes the choice not to abstain from meat, then some other penance of choice is to be observed in honor of the passion and death of our Lord on the cross.

On Saint Patrick's Day, the memory of this missionary apostle to Ireland recalls his preaching of the Faith and encouragement to live authentic Christian lives. The Faithful throughout the Archdiocese may observe March 17, 2017 with another choice of penance rather than abstaining from meat.
