Ash Wednesday - Beginning of Lent
Ashes will be distributed on Ash Wednesday, February 26 during the following Masses: 8am, 5:15pm, and 7pm at Newman, and noon on the University of Oregon campus in the EMU Gumwood Room.
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.
