Ash Wednesday Mass Times

Posted on February 14, 2023 in: General News

Masses on Ash Wednesday (February 22) will be celebrated in church at 6:45am, 8:00am, 9:30 am (All School Mass) and at 7:00pm.



Ash Wednesday (February 22) and Good Friday (April 7) are days of fast and abstinence.  Fasting is required of Catholics aged 18-59 and means having one full meal, two smaller meals, and nothing in between meals, though water and medicine are always permitted.  Abstinence is abstaining from eating meat for all Catholics over the age of 14.  No Catholic should lightly excuse himself or herself from this obligation.

All Fridays in Lent are days of abstinence from meat.  Here again, Catholics will not hold themselves lightly excused, but if there is a serious health problem, this obligation does not apply.  Catholics should strive to make all days of Lent a time of prayer and penance.
