Ash Wednesday - Beginning of Lent
Please join us for distribution of Ashes on Wednesday, February 14 in the Newman Center Chapel.
Ashes will be distributed on Ash Wednesday, February 14 during the following Masses: 7a, 5:15p, and 8pm at Newman, and noon on the University of Oregon campus in Gerlinger Lounge.
All Catholics 14 years and older must abstain from meat on the Fridays of Lent, Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. All Catholics between ages 18 and 59 are to fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday.
To fast means to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken for
good health but together they should not equal a full meal. Eating between meals is not permitted; however, liquids including coffee, milk and fruit juices are allowed.
