Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday will be observed on February 14th with Mass at 5 p.m. with Imposition of Ashes.  This is a day of Fasting and Abstinence. 


For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onwards.
