LENT BEGINS FEBRUARY 18
Ash Wednesday is February 18th and marks the beginning of the season of Lent.
Ash Wednesday is not a Holy Day of Obligation.
On Ash Wednesday, Mass will be celebrated at 6:00 am, 9:00 am, 12:05 pm and 7:30 pm. Ashes will be distributed at all Masses.
Ash Wednesday is a day of fast and abstinence.
Throughout Lent, Saint Leo Parish will have Eucharistic Adoration between the 6:15 and 9am Masses each weekday. Beginning February 20th, on Fridays we will have Confessions at 7:00 pm as usual, but instead of the Holy Hour, we will have Stations of the Cross at 7:30 pm. Beginning February 25th, on Wednesdays we will have Confessions beginning at 6:30 pm and Holy Hour from 7:00-8:00 pm.
FASTING AND ABSTINENCE
Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fast and abstinence.
Every Friday in Lent is a day of Abstinence.
Fast means 1 main meal per day and 2 smaller, meatless meals for all between the ages of 18 and 59 (inclusive.)
Abstinence means no meat or meat products are to be eaten. This is applicable to all who are 14 years or older.
These are minimum standards for the observance of the Lenten penitential period of preparation and no Catholic may lightly excuse him/herself from them.
