Rules of Fast and Abstinence During Lent

Thursday, February 4th, 2016

Picture1

Ash Wednesday (February 10th) and Good Friday (March 25th) are days of Fast and Abstinence and all the Fridays of Lent are days of Abstinence. Abstinence is from meat and is required by Catholics 14 years and older.  Fasting is required by all Catholics 18 years of age but not yet 59. Those bound by this rule may take only one full meal. Two smaller meals (called “collations”) are permitted as necessary to maintain strength according to one’s needs, but eating solid foods between meals is not permitted. These two smaller meals, put together, must not equal a full meal. Everyone is certainly encouraged to keep the traditional discipline of fasting during the weekdays of Lent.

Holy Mass will be celebrated on Ash Wednesday at 8:15 a.m. and at 7:00 p.m.. with the blessing and imposition of ashes at both Masses.   Stations of the Cross will be held on the Friday’s of Lent at 7:00 p.m.

 

Photos: Palm Sunday of the Lord’s Passion 2013

Wednesday, April 10th, 2013

These photographs were taken on Palm Sunday following the Noon Mass, which is celebrated in the Extraordinary Form.  This explains why the antependium and tabernacle veil are violet and not red, as they were for the earlier Masses.  The Relic of the True Cross was exposed after Mass and the Faithful were given an opportunity for veneration as they entered into Holy Week.  The candle stand on the first step on the Epistle Side of the Altar is what we use as the Sanctus Candle (during Lent it is also unbleached, as are the Altar Candles).
