Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday is one of two yearly days of obligatory fasting and abstinence for Roman Catholics, along with Good Friday. The norms of fasting are obligatory from age 18 until age 59.

Fasting means a person is permitted to eat one full meal. Two smaller meals may also be taken, but they are not to equal that of a full meal. The rule of abstinence from meat is binding upon Catholics aged 14 and onwards.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF BISHOP ELECT MARTIN CHAMBERS (aged 59)

With heavy hearts, we share the news of the untimely passing of Bishop Elect Martin Chambers, who departed peacefully in his sleep on the eve of April 10, 2024.

This comes as a profound loss not only to his immediate family but to our entire diocesan family and beyond.
