Wednesday, February 10 ~ Masses and distribution of ashes
at 8am, 5pm and 7pm.
It is a day of Fast and Abstinence. The law of fasting is for those 18-59 years and allows only one full meal during the day, allows taking some food in the morning and evening to maintain strength, but prohibits eating solid food between meals.
The law of abstinence is for those 14 years+ and forbids the eating of meat.
Fasting is to be observed on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday and abstinence is to be observed on Ash Wednesday and every Friday in Lent.
