LENT – Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday is March 6th this year and always begins our Lenten Season.  Ash Wednesday, along with Good Friday, is a Day of Abstinence and Fasting. So remember, NO MEAT on these days and eat only 3 meals, NO snacking inbetween. The Law of Abstinence binds those 14 years old and older; the Law of Fasting applies to those who are 18 years old until midnight of their 59th birthday (see Canon 1252 and commentary of the Code of Canon Law).
