Lent begins later this week on Ash Wednesday. Review the Lenten liturgical regulations by clicking on the Season icon at the bottom of the page and opening the Season of Lent heading. Announce the Ash Wednesday Mass schedule. Announce the Lenten fasting regulations, with particular emphasis on Ash Wednesday as a day of fast and abstinence. The faithful should be instructed that if they celebrate St. Valentine’s Day in any festive way (with a special dinner out, etc.) that the feast coincides with Ash Wednesday this year, and that they would do well to anticipate their celebration by a day or two, such as to Fat Tuesday, so that they may observe Ash Wednesday properly.
