Lenten Ember Day set for March 26

Parishioners in the Archdiocese of Portland are encouraged to participate in the Lenten Ember Day on Wednesday, March 26. An Ember Day is one set aside for prayer and fasting.

In the Archdiocese of Portland Ember Days are celebrated in Lent, Advent and in September.
To fast means to eat only one full meal on this day. The other two meals should be less than the normal amount unless they are already at the minimum for good health.  Eating between meals is not permitted, but liquids are allowed.
The prayer intention for this Lenten Ember Day is for the strengthening of marriage and family life.
