ASH WEDNESDAY

ASH WEDNESDAY

March 1st is Ash Wednesday and marks the beginning of Lent. Distribution of ashes will be offered at our regular 9am Mass, as well as another Mass at 7pm.

Ash Wednesday is a day of fast and abstinence; all Catholics from 18 to 60 are asked to fast, meaning they should eat no more than one simple meal and two snacks during the day, and all those age 14 and over are asked to not eat meat throughout the day.
