Ash Wednesday 2019


Ash Wednesday (6 March 2019)

OBLIGATORY DAY OF FAST & ABSTINENCE

Masses with Imposition of Ashes

6 March 2019: 7am, 12noon, 7pm

Abstinence (from age 14 onwards) - refrain from eating any meat.

Fasting (from above age 18 to under age 60) – to have one main meal or two small meals.

Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and is always 46 days before Easter Sunday. Lent is a 40-day season (not counting Sundays) marked by repentance, fasting, reflection, and ultimately celebration. The 40-day period represents Christ’s time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and where Satan tempted him. Lent asks believers to set aside a time each year for similar fasting, marking an intentional season of focus on Christ’s life, ministry, sacrifice, and resurrection.
