Ash Wednesday, February 22 marks the beginning of Lent.  The ashes symbolize our penance made sacramental by the blessing of the Church, and they help us develop a spirit of humility and sacrifice. Accompanying this is prayer, fasting and almsgiving.  In this spirit of humility we are encouraged to abstain from meat, feasting and activities like dining out.  (Small children, the elderly and sick are exempt from fasting and abstaining.)  Please join our celebrations as listed below.
