ASH WEDNESDAY – This Wednesday, Feb. 22 is Ash Wednesday and marks the beginning of Lent. We will have Masses at 8:15am, 11:15am and 6:45pm, all at which ashes will be distributed. This is not a holy day of obligation but it is a day of fast and abstinence.
Ash Wednesday, February 22nd and Good Friday, April 7th, are days of abstinence from meat (for those who have reached their fourteenth birthday) and also days of fast. The day of fast is limited to one full meal and two small meals (for those between the ages of 18 and 59). All Fridays of the season of Lent are days of abstinence from meat. Fast and abstinence on the days prescribed should be considered a minimum response to the Lord's call to penance and conversion.

LENTEN BOOKS – We have a limited amount of the Lenten Little Black Books and the Word Among us available after Mass today. This is a great way to guide your thoughts and prayers this Lenten season.
RICE BOWL – We will once again be participating in Operation Rice Bowl, a program of prayer, fasting, learning and giving that benefits those facing hunger and poverty. Please be sure to take home a Rice Bowl packet and follow this simple yet powerful Lenten practice. Rice Bowls can be found at all doors of the church and will be collected at the end of Lent.
