Lenten Schedule

Lent begins each year on Ash Wednesday, 46 days before Easter Sunday. This year Lent will begin on February 22nd, 2023, and if you are following the 40 days tradition, Lent will end on Holy Saturday, April 8th, 2023. The Lent season is a 6-week time of somber reflection and remembrance. Lent is traditionally a time of fasting and abstaining from something to repent and focus our hearts and minds on the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Lenten Disciplines of Fasting & Abstinence Catholics in good health ages 18 to 59 are required to fast and abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Fasting consists of eating only one meal, with the possibility of two smaller snacks that do not add up to a single full meal. Catholics age 14 and older are to abstain from meat on all Fridays in Lent.
