Phone Fast Fridays

The Archdiocese of Hartford is embarking on its second annual phone fast Lenten campaign. Last year we referred to it as I Phone Fast; this year we have modified the name to Phone Fast Fridays (#PFF).

The mantra of the campaign tells us that, “Silencing our busy phones, we give God a chance to call our heart.” Last year we asked the faithful to abstain from using their cell phone on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday only. The campaign was met with such enthusiams that we decided to expand it to include every Friday during Lent.

The Archdiocese has ordered stickers promoting Phone Fast Fridays. If you would like some information, please email [email protected].


Confession Mondays

The Archdiocese will once again sponsor its Lenten Confession Campaign, although with some modification of past practice. Monday will be “confession day” in every parish throughout the Archdiocese, but visit ConfessionMondays.com to look up parish locations and times. Monday, February 19th from 6-7PM at St. Rita.
