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.

NORMS FOR FASTING AND 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

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.
