Ash Wednesday, March 6th Mass Times: 9:30am and 7:00pm

ASH WEDNESDAY

The Holy Season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 6th; we will celebrate Mass at 9:30 AM and 7:00 PM. During both liturgies, there will be the distribution of ashes.

FAST AND ABSTINENCE AND OTHER ACTS OF PENANCE DURING LENT

The Bishops of the United States prescribe, as minimal obligation, that all persons who are fourteen years of age and older are bound to abstain from eating meat on Ash Wednesday, March 6th, on all Fridays of Lent including Good Friday. Further, all persons eighteen years of age and older, up to and including their fifty-ninth birthday, are bound to fast by limiting themselves to a single full meal on Ash Wednesday and on Good Friday, while the other two meals on those days are to be light.

All the faithful are encouraged, when possible, to participate at Mass and to receive the Holy Eucharist daily, to celebrate frequently the Sacrament of Penance, to undertake spiritual reading, especially the study of the Sacred Scriptures, and to participate in parish Lenten devotions as well as Lenten education programs. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament is especially recommended.
