    • All Day

    A period of growing in virtue particularly through fasting, prayer, and almsgiving. Catholics reflect on their need to be healed of sin (especially through the Sacrament of Confession), the sacrifice of Christ’s self-offering on the cross, and the anticipation of Easter. Multiple observances apply.

    • All Day

    Ayyám-i-Há, or “Days of glory,” are devoted to spiritual preparation for the Fast, hospitality, charity and gift giving. They are celebrated during the four or five days (depending upon leap year) before the last month of the Bahá’í year. Begins at sunset of the first day and ends at sunset of the last day.
