1. Ash Wednesday

Lent begins today, 18 February and ends on 2 April, Holy Thursday.

Lent is a preparation for Easter.  A period for the renewal of baptismal promises through prayer, penance and good works.

One way of doing penance is through fasting and abstinence.  Fasting is required from ages 18 to 60 and abstinence from age 14 (CIC 1252)
