Mass will be celebrated at 7am, 8:45am, 12:15pm, 6:30pm. Ashes will be distributed at all Masses. In addition, there will be a Liturgy of the Word at 11am, with distribution of ashes (no Holy Communion). No Holy Hour.
Reminder: Ash Wednesday is an obligatory day of fasting and abstinence for Catholics. All Catholics over the age of 14 are obliged to abstain from meat. Catholics from age 18 through 59 who are in good health are obliged to fast. One full meal is allowed. Two other meatless meals, sufficient to maintain strength, are allowed. Together the two meals should not exceed the full meal. Drinking of ordinary liquids does not break the fast.
If you have been away from the Church for a while, know that St. Peter’s is always ready to welcome you home. St. Peter’s is a warm community of faith and committed to helping anyone and everyone draw closer to Christ through the Catholic Church. We hope that you will consider coming to Confession and Mass to begin your journey home, or think about contacting a priest to discuss whatever may be keeping you away. We miss you and hope to see you soon!
