EMBER FRIDAY

NOTE: FRIDAY EMBER DAY FOR SEPT. 2017 WILL NOT BE HELD. 

Ember days are kept four times per year for special prayer and fasting specifically for clerical vocations, recalling that the apostles prayed and fasted prior to the laying on of hands in ordinations.  The ember weeks are the weeks after the first Sunday of Lent, Whitsunday (Pentecost), September 15, and December 13.
