 This year, Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, falls on February 18, 2015.  You are reminded of the Church's laws for fast and abstinence during Lent.

“On these days (of penance), the faithful are in a special manner to devote themselves to prayer, to engage in works of piety and charity, to deny themselves by fulfilling their obligations more faithfully ..”  The New Code of Canon Law

  Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, February 18, 2015,  is not a Holy day of Obligation.  Masses are at 7:00 AM, 8:15AM and 7:00 PM.   Ashes are distributed during Mass.


Ash Wednesday and Good Friday  are days of fasting.  Catholics between the ages of 18 and 59 are permitted one full meal and two lesser meals per day (which together should not equal one full meal), with no eating between meals. 


Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent  are days of abstinence.  Catholics who are 14 years or older should abstain from meat entirely.  Soups and gravies made from meat are permitted.
