Prayer for Strength and Faith ...Anonymous
In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray, Dear Lord, see me through these hard times.

In these troubling times,
I am filled with unspeakable fears. I reach out my hand to you now, And ask you to walk besides me. I cannot carry all my burdens, But I know you can, and will. Please walk beside me. Please guide me.

Please help me hold on strong, Through the trials and storms. Help me hold on to my faith, In even the darkest hour.
Stay with me Lord, And show me Your way.  In your love and Holy Spirit I abide. Amen.

The Stations of the Cross and Soup Supper scheduled for Friday night, February 12, 2016, is cancelled due to the possibility of bad weather.

Stations of the Cross and Soup Supper each Friday of Lent, beginning at 6:30 pm at Holy Redeemer by the Sea Church.

Sunday:  First Sunday of Lent

Friday:    Abstinence



Ash Wednesday, February 10, 2016, and Good Friday, March 25, 2016, are days of fasting and abstinence.

Fridays of Lent are also days of abstinence. Fasting is to be observed by all 18 years of age and older, who have not yet celebrated their 59th birthday. On a fast day one full meal is allowed. Two other meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be taken according to each one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted, but liquids, including milk and juices, are allowed. Abstinence is observed by all 14 years of age and older. On days of abstinence, no meat is allowed. Note that when health or ability to work would be seriously affected, Church law does not oblige. When in doubt concerning fast and abstinence, the Parish Priest should be consulted. Fasting, almsgiving, and prayer are the three traditional disciplines of Lent. The faithful and Catechumens should undertake these practices seriously in a spirit of penance and of preparation for Initiation into the Church or the renewal of Baptism Promises at Easter

The Dare County Sheriff's Office has rolled at a new public service program that encourages visitors to the Outer Banks to know exactly where they are in case of an emergency. Cell phones sometimes share inaccurate or incomplete location data with 911 dispatch, so knowing your street address can make it easier for help to find you.

The procedure for notifying the office that a priest is needed for a sacramental emergency (Anointing of the Sick, formerly known as Last Rites) is as follows:  Dial the parish phone number, (252) 261-4700, and when the announcement begins, dial extension 215. You will be asked to record the nature of your emergency and a call back number.
A Priest or a member of the Parish staff will return your call as soon as possible.
