Dispensation for St. Patrick’s Day

For those who wish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Bishop W. Shawn McKnight has approved a dispensation permitting Catholics in our diocese to consume meat on March 17. Bishop McKnight encourages those who do so to observe one of three alternative penances: participate at Mass, participate in the Stations of the Cross or pray the Sorrowful Mysteries of the Holy Rosary.
