Special Day of Prayer and Fasting for the Coronavirus Outbreak

As was done in Rome, Archbishop Bernard Hebda asks the faithful of the Archdiocese to join in a special day of fasting, abstinence, and prayer invoking God’s help in these challenging days for our Archdiocese, our country and the world. This day will occur next Wednesday, March 18, 2020, between the Feast of St. Patrick (March 17) and the Solemnity of St. Joseph (March 19). On that day, Archbishop Hebda invites Catholics who are ordinarily bound to observe fast and abstinence on Ash Wednesday to prayerfully make this same sacrifice.
