Prayer Service in Church for Religious Ed students
Mass in Church
Ashes are distributed during Masses and Services, not afterward.
Session 3 Religious Ed students will receive
ashes at the 5:30 P.M. Service; those
in Session 4 will participate in the 7:30 P.M. Mass.
We accept the ashes as an outward sign
of our firm decision to turn away from sin and be faithful
to the Gospel, praying for the blessing of God's forgiveness
and the gift of his light.
On Ash Wednesday,
those fourteen years of age and older
abstain from meat;
all eighteen years of age and older, up to and including
their fifty-ninth birthday, are bound to fast by limiting
themselves to a single full meal,
while the other two meals are to be light.
