Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent.
It is a day of fast and abstinence (from eating meat).
The imposition of ashes will take place after 12:00 PM noon (service only)
and Masses at 6:00 PM (English) and 7:30 PM (Spanish).

Ash Wednesday and Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting and abstinence for us, Catholics. In addition, Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence.

For members of the Latin Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59. When fasting, a person is permitted to eat one full meal, as well as two smaller meals that together are not equal to a full meal. The norms concerning abstinence from meat are binding upon members of the Latin Catholic Church from age 14 onward.
