Ash Wednesday Masses

12:15 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. in the Newman Centre’s St. Thomas Aquinas Chapel, on Wednesday, February 13.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and is a day of Fasting and Abstinence. Ashes will be distributed during both Masses (not after Mass.) Fasting (one full meal and two smaller meals, no snacking) applies to those 18-60 years. This does not apply to those who are pregnant, sick or elderly. Abstinence from meat applies to those 13 and older. During Lent, the faithful prepare for Easter through prayer, penance and works of charity or mercy.

For a further history of Ash Wednesday and the season of Lent, see this video: Ash Wednesday & Lent in Two Minutes.
