The Lent this year in the Catholic Church will begin on Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2018. The ceremony of dispensing ashes will take place at all Holy Masses in the morning and in the evening, sign that symbolises acceptance of fasting and the penance. The fasting is mandatory on this day. The Lenten season encourages us to meditate on the passion of Christ, particularly in devotion of the Way of the Cross. The schedule for this Devotion is as follows:
Cross Mountain at 2 pm, parish church of St. James after the evening Holy Mass at 6 pm, branch churches (Surmanci, Vionica, Miletina), Fridays at 4 pm.
