Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday will be celebrated this year on Wednesday, February 26th, 2020. As usual, Ashes will be distributed at the following Masses and Service:

7:00AM - English Mass
9:00AM - English Mass
12:00PM - English Mass
3:30PM - Service of the Word
7:00PM - Bilingual English/Spanish Mass

Please note that the Service of the Word at 3:30PM is not a Mass, and thus Holy Communion will not be distributed then. In addition to receiving Ashes, the Sacrament of Confession will be made available the entire day in all the major languages of our Parish (English, Spanish and Italian) from 6:30AM to 9:00PM.

Abstinence: All the faithful who have reached 14 years of age are required to abstain totally from meat on Ash Wednesday, the Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday (April 10th).

Fasting: All the faithful between the ages of 18 and 59 inclusive are bound to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. This practice involves limiting oneself to a single meal and avoiding food between meals. Light sustenance may also be taken on two other occasions during the day.
