Lent, Holy Week & Easter
This page will be updated as more information becomes available. Please check back often.
Lent began on Ash Wednesday
February 17, 2021
Lent is a time when Catholics are called to prayer, to fasting, and to almsgiving, which means donating money or goods to the poor, and performing other acts of charity.
As a reminder, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are days of fasting, and of abstaining from meat. Fasting is defined as eating one full meatless meal, as well as two smaller meals that are not equal to a full meal. Catholics also do not eat meat on the other Fridays in Lent.
