LENTEN REGULATIONS: As in the past, the following regulations are in place for Abstaining and Fasting during Lent:
ABSTINENCE: Everyone fourteen years of age and older is bound to abstain from meat on ASH WEDNESDAY, the FRIDAYS of Lent and GOOD FRIDAY.
FAST:Everyone eighteen years of age and older but under the age of sixty is also bound to fast on ASH WEDNESDAY and GOOD FRIDAY.
On these two days, the law of fast allows only one full meal a day, but does not prohibit taking some food during the day, so long as this does not constitute another full meal. Drinking liquids during the day is permitted. When health or ability to work would be seriously affected, the law does not oblige. In doubt concerning fast or abstinence, a priest assigned to pastoral ministry or confessor should be consulted. In the spirit of penance, the faithful should not lightly excuse themselves from this obligation.
ASH WEDNESDAY: Ashes will be distributed March 5th during the 8:00 am, 4:00 and 7:00 pm Masses. All services will be in the Church. During Lent, every Friday the 8:00 am Mass will be followed by the Stations of the Cross.
