Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. It is a day of fasting and abstinence which means that all Catholics are obliged to abstain from meat, and all adults between 16 and 65 are obliged to fast. Ashes will be distributed at all Masses which will be at 8am, 10am, 12.45pm, 6pm (Polish) and 7.30pm.
Stations of the Cross
Every week during Lent there will be Stations of the Cross in the Cathedral on Tuesdays at 7pm, and on Fridays after the 12.45pm Mass. Stations in Polish will be on Fridays following Mass at 6pm.
