Lenten Regulations

Lent began on Ash Wednesday, February 14, and continues until the Easter Triduum (The Triduum begins with the evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper on Holy Thursday, March 29, and runs through Easter Sunday, April 1.)

The Law of Abstinence prohibits eating meat (but allows eggs, milk products, and sauces made with animal fat) and applies to all Catholics age 14 and older on Ash Wednesday, the Fridays of Lent, and Good Friday.

The Law of Fasting allows a single full meal each day and two light meals at other times, but no solid food between meals. This applies to Catholics ages 18 through 59 on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.

Stations of the Cross take place at 5:30 p.m. on all the Fridays of Lent.

Individual confessions are offered on Saturdays from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m. (More individual confessions will be scheduled soon.) Our Parish Communal Reconciliation Service takes place on Tuesday, March 27, at 7:00 p.m.

Rice Bowls from Catholic Relief Services are available in the narthex until we run out.
