Lenten Regulations 2018

The year, Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, falls on February 14th.  The present laws of the Church regarding fast and abstinence during the Season of Lent are as follows:

  1.  Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, March 30th, are days of fast.  On days of fast, one full meal is allowed.  Two lesser meals, sufficient to maintain strength, may be take according to each one’s needs, but together they should not equal another full meal.  Eating between meals is not permitted.  Catholics who have completed their 18th year are bound by this law until the beginning of their 60th year.
  2. Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent are also days of abstinence.  On days of abstinence, meats should not be taken at any meal.  The law of abstinence binds all Catholics who have completed their 14th year.

Masses will be at 8:30 am and again at 6:30 pm on Ash Wednesday, February 14th.

Our entire Ash Wednesday collection will be dedicated to Fr. Bosco for the school in Abakaliki, Nigeria.  Your contribution will help make Fr. Bosco’s dream of building a school one step closer to completion.  Thank you for your support.
