Ash Wednesday February 14th with distribution of ash crosses during Mass at 6 pm

Ash Wednesday the faithful are required to observe fast and abstinence. Observation of fast comprises all faithful from 18 til 59 years of age. Abstinence, that is the injunction of abstaining from meat, comprises everybody from the age of 14 years off.


The Church emphasizes the penitential nature of Ash Wednesday by calling us to fast and abstain from meat. Catholics who are over the age of 18 and under the age of 60 are required to fast, which means that they can eat only one complete meal and two smaller ones during the day, with no food in between. Catholics who are over the age of 14 are required to refrain from eating any meat, or any food made with meat, on Ash Wednesday.
