OUR CATHOLIC APPEAL - 2014: Our Catholic Appeal is an annual opportunity for every member of our faith family to share in the pastoral work of Christ by funding the important programs and ministries of the Diocese of Orlando. Our Catholic Appeal helps us to fulfill this mission "Teaching & Living the Light of Christ" by funding diocesan-wide ministries that bring forth a greater awareness of God's presence in the world. Gifts to Our Catholic Appeal fund the annual operating costs of our diocesan Chancery & provide critical support for outreach programs such as Catholic Charities of Central Florida. The life-changing programs and ministries that are made possible through Our Catholic Appeal benefit our entire Central Florida community and help our diocese to: feed the hungry & comfort the sick; educate young people in an environment where Christ is loved & embraced; assist families to grow in their love for God and one another; train parish catechists and certify new lay ecclesial ministers; defend human life and dignity; offer resources for lifelong faith formation; nurture those who have answered God's call to the priesthood or religious life.

Catechesis Corner: Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. In addition, all Catholics 14 years old and older must abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all the Fridays of Lent. Fasting as explained by the U.S. bishops means partaking of only one full meal. Some food (not equaling another full meal) is permitted at breakfast and around midday or in the evening—depending on when a person chooses to eat the main or full meal. Abstinence forbids the use of meat, but not of eggs, milk products or condiments made of animal fat. Abstinence does not include meat juices and liquid foods made from meat. Thus, such foods as chicken broth, consommé, soups cooked or flavored with meat, meat gravies or sauces, as well as seasonings or condiments made from animal fat are not forbidden. So it is permissible to use margarine and lard. Even bacon drippings which contain little bits of meat may be poured over lettuce as seasoning.
