Lenten Resources

With Ash Wednesday marking the beginning of Lent, it is important to know all of the resources available to you throughout the Archdiocese of Mobile.

Archbishop Thomas J. Rodi has penned a letter to the faithful offering guidance and encouraging everyone to take advantage of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. To read his letter, click the button below.

We continue to ask for parish Stations of the Cross and fish fry schedules as well as additional confession times.

Please submit this information to The Catholic Week via our communications specialist, Claudia Sims, at [email protected].

Catholic Charities Appeal in Action:

93 years of serving our neighbor

Seminarians from St. John Vianney College Seminary in Minnesota recently visited and assisted Catholic Social Services in repairing 10 homes of elderly/disabled homeowners. Examples such as this serve to show the Catholic Charities Appeal in action. Here we highlight just a fraction of the year-round work that is funded through donations. 

A Joint Statement on the CHOOSE Act from Archbishop Thomas J. Rodi and Bishop Steven J. Raica of Birmingham

The CHOOSE Act program, if passed during the 2024 Alabama legislative session, would provide up to $7,000 per child enrolled at an accredited, participating private or public school through an education savings account funded by a new refundable income tax credit.

Find more information on the CHOOSE Act as well as the joint statement below.

One more ceremony will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday at the Cathedral-Basilica of the Immaculate Conception for those in Mobile and Baldwin counties.
