Ash Wednesday, Lent & Easter

  • Ash Wednesday 14th February —day of fast & abstinence 
  • 30th March Good Friday- day of fast and abstinence 
  • Easter 1st April

 

Although not a Holy Day of Obligation we are urged to attend Mass  and receive the blessed ashes on our forehead on Ash Wednesday as a sign of sorrow for our sins. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of Fast and Abstinence from meat 18yrs-60yrs incl. Abstinence from eating meat for those of age 15yrs+. Fasting implies self-denial in the matter of food. It can also include other acts of self-discipline, including bearing with patience our crosses that we have not chosen but must carry. The faithful are to incorporate into their lives the main themes of Lent: Attention to prayer; Self-denial; Generosity towards others, especially to the needy; Reflection on the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ; Renewal of our baptismal commitment to Christ and his way. 

(Holy Spirit)
