Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of Fast and Abstinence from meat. The obligation to fast commences on one’s 21st birthday and ceases on the 59th birthday. Fasting means eating only one full meal a day and two other light meals that should not equal a full meal. Abstinence from meat is a lifetime penance.
Lent is a time of inner conversion; Confessions are every Saturday at 9:30-11:00am and also by appointment.
Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and Stations of the Cross will be every Lenten Friday at 6pm beginning February 28th. Every Friday of Lent is a day of ABSTINENCE from meat, (beef, pork, poultry).
