The bishops of Wisconsin, including Bishop James P. Powers of the Diocese of Superior, have issued a special dispensation from adhering to the law of Lenten abstinence for Friday, March 17, to allow the faithful to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.

The bishops encourage those who utilize the dispensation to perform another act of penance (self-denial, charity, prayer, etc.) in observance of the day.
