2022 ADVENT EMBER DAYS Advent Ember Days are December 14th, 16th, and 17th. Ember Days are days of prayer and fasting that mark the changing of times and seasons in order to bring about deeper spiritual renewal. On these days, the Church “entreats the Lord for the various needs of humanity” and gives thanks to God for various blessings received (Universal Norms on the Liturgical Year and the Calendar, 45). Bishop Lucia invites both the clergy and the faithful of the diocese to participate in the following Ember Days for the Eucharistic Revival. 2022 ADVENT EMBER DAYS FOR EUCHARISTIC DEVOTION: DECEMBER 14TH PRAY a holy hour before the Blessed Sacrament FAST from online activity / social media.
