Diocese of Pittsburgh, Greensburg offer guidelines as Ash Wednesday falls on Valentine's Day

Aquinas Academy second-grade teacher Sierra Olexa receives ashes during an Ash Wednesday prayer service at Blessed Sacrament Cathedral in Greensburg on Feb. 22, 2023. With Ash Wednesday falling on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14, the Diocese of Greensburg and the Diocese of Pittsburgh have confirmed there will be no exemption to allow Catholics to eat meat.

Catholics celebrating Valentine’s Day might want to find a seafood restaurant or meatless dining option — or choose a different day to celebrate altogether.
