Everyone is welcomed to join us on this Holy day, as we  begin our Lenten journey of faith by observing prayer, fasting and almsgiving throughout the next 40 days.

Lenten regulations for Catholics

  • Abstinence from meat on Ash Wednesday and all Fridays of Lent (14yrs and older)
  • Fasting on Ash Wednesday and on Good Friday (18 to 59yrs). One full meal with two smaller meals if necessary to maintain one’s strength but eating between meals is not permitted.
  • All of the faithful and catechumens should undertake serious practice of the three traditions of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving (money and goods).

May your Lent 2020 be a time of reflection and promise. Please take a moment and read Bishop Di Marzio’s  Pastoral Letter for Ash Wednesday Feb 26|
