1 - Lent is to be observed as a special season of prayer, penance and Christian charity.
2 - Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of abstinence from meat. They are also days of fasting, allowing one full meal.
3 - The other Fridays of Lent are days of abstinence from meat. The obligation of fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday obliges all Catholics 21 years of age until the completion of their 59th year. The obligation of abstinence obliges all Catholics from the age of 14. Those whose health or efficiency of work would be substantially impaired by fast and abstinence are excused from physical mortification. When there is doubt or question regarding an individual’s obligation a priest should be consulted.
On the Fridays of Lent we will be having Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament starting at 11AM (barring any funerals) and ending with Benediction at 7:15PM. Please come spend an hour with our Lord during this Lenten Season.
We will be having Stations of the Cross every Friday during Lent at 7:30PM.
