What is Lent?

Lent is our time of preparation. A 40-day journey of prayer, fasting and almsgiving, Lent is a journey that spans Ash Wednesday through Holy Week, culminating in the great celebration of Easter. As Catholics, the spiritual pillars of prayer, fasting and almsgiving guide us in daily reflection on our own lives as we strive to deepen our relationship with God and neighbor—no matter where in the world that neighbor may live.

Lent ultimately leads to Easter—and the hope of the Resurrection. And as Catholics, we are called to share that hope with every member of our global human family.

Lent: Fasting and Abstinence

Lent begins with the celebration of Ash Wednesday on March 6th.  (Mass will be celebrated at 8:00am and 6:00pm)

Fasting: Those between the ages of 18 and 59 years old are obliged to observe the laws of fasting.  Traditionally, fasting means limiting oneself to one full meal in the day and two smaller meals.  The two prescribed days of fasting are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday (also a day of Abstinence).

Abstinence: The law on abstinence obliges all those who are over the age of 14 to abstain from meat at all meals on Ash Wednesday and all the Fridays of Lent, including Good Friday.

 

PLEASE JOIN US EACH FRIDAY OF LENT FOR STATIONS OF THE CROSS AT 6:00PM!
