Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday

Wednesday, 26th February, 2020.

Mass will be at 7am at St Francis de Sales Church and 12 noon at St Mary Magdalene Church.

There is the imposition of Ashes at both Masses.

Note: Those over 16 years old and under 65 years old, who are in good health, should fast by seriously cutting back the amount of food they eat on Ash Wednesday, and should abstain from flesh meat.

Only one normal size meal – without flesh meat (fish meat is fine) – should be consumed, but drinks are permitted and two smaller, light snacks, may also be taken. This is a great way to start your Lenten Fast, but please be sensible with regard to your own health, particularly if you suffer any underlying conditions.
