The Lenten Ember Days are the Wednesday after the First Sunday of Lent and the following Friday and Saturday, so this year they fall on March 13th, 15th, and 16th. While there is no additional fasting or abstinence requirement during the Lenten Ember Days beyond the obligatory abstinence from meat on Fridays during Lent for all Catholics age 14 and above, the Ember Days are always a time of prayer, especially for seminarians. Please keep in prayer the seminarians of the Personal Ordinaiate of the Chair of St Peter: Armando Alejandro, Nathan Davis, Roberto Brunel, Patrick McCain, & Robb Lester.
