Lent season begins


Guam – Guam’s faithful flocked to their parishes to observe Ash Wednesday, which marks the first day of Lent.

Part of the Lent tradition is getting the ash marking on the foreheads. The faithful will pray, fast,  ask for repentance and abstain from meat consumption until Easter.

The Lent season lasts six weeks.

A 6:30 p.m. mass is scheduled at Nuestra Senora de las Aguas in Mongmong, Santa Bernadita, and St. Francis parishes.

This will be followed by 7 p.m. masses held at Our Lady of Mt Carmel, Nino Perdido y Sagrada Familia in Asan, Santa Barbara Church, Santa Teresita, St. Jude, San Miguel St. Anthony, San Dionisio, and our Lady of Lourdes parishes.
