Our Lenten Reconciliation Service with the parishes in Webster Groves will be celebrated on the Monday of Holy Week, April 10, at 7:00pm, here at MQP. Please come to experience this Sacrament of Mercy! No Confessions will be heard on Holy Saturday, April 15.

Fast and Abstinence
Good Friday, April 14, is a day of fast & abstinence, Fasting is for Catholics between the ages of 18-59 and means one meal, two smaller meals, and nothing in between meals. Medicine and water are always allowed, and in cases of ill health, there is no obligation. Abstinence is refraining from eating meat. If possible, continue this fast through Holy Saturday, so that we may approach the Resurrection hungry and thirsty and ready to receive Christ!

Triduum Collections
On Holy Thursday, a collection is always to be taken exclusively for the poor. This year, our Holy Thursday collection will be shared with our St. Vincent de Paul Society.

On Good Friday, a collection is taken for the upkeep of the Christian shrines in the Holy Land.

On Easter Sunday, a collection is taken for the care of our retired Archdiocesan priests who have served us so well for many years. Thanks for your generosity to our retired priests, and to all these special collections.

Parish Offices will be will be closed Good Friday through Easter Monday. If you have parish business, please take care of that at another time.
