Lent begins Wednesday!

Lent begins this week with Ash Wednesday. The Mass schedule for
Ash Wednesday is on the back of today’s worship aid.

Ash Wednesday is a day of fasting and abstaining from meat, and
all Fridays during Lent are days to abstain from meat. Everyone
from age 18 until age 59 are expected to fast on Ash Wednesday.
This means that one should eat only one full meal that day, but two
smaller meals are also permitted. With regard to abstaining from
meat only, that applies to everyone age 14 and older on the days

Every Monday evening during Lent, beginning February 22, the
Stations of the Cross will be prayed at 7:00pm. Come early to pray
the Rosary at 6:30 on those evenings.

Beginning next Tuesday, February 23, Confessions will be heard on
Tuesday mornings from 8:00 to 9:00 during the Season of Lent. This
is in addition to the regular Saturday Confession time between 3:00
and 4:00.
