Ash Wednesday - March 1st - Mass will be celebrated at 8am, 5pm, 7pm with distribution of ashes.
Lenten Fast and Abstinence - During Lent, the whole Christian community enters into a journey of conversion. The three Lenten practices from earliest times are prayer, fasting and almsgiving. Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are universal days of fast and abstinence in the Church. Fasting means that Catholics 18—59 years of age are expected to eat only one full meal and two other smaller meals, not to equal a full meal. If you have a serious health condition which prevents you from fasting, you are excused. Catholics 14 and older are expected to abstain from
meat (beef, poultry, pork) on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all Fridays of Lent.

Annunciation - Angel's Message to Mary
In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. —Luke 1:26-27
