Ash Wednesday

FEBRUARY 26, 2020

Ash Wednesday opens Lent, a season of fasting and prayer. Ash Wednesday takes place 46 days before Easter Sunday, and is chiefly observed by Catholics, although many other Christians observe it too. Ashes also symbolize grief, in this case, grief that we have sinned and caused division from God. Writings from the Second-century Church refer to the wearing of ashes as a sign of penance. Priests administer ashes during Mass and all are invited to accept the ashes as a visible symbol of penance. Small children, the elderly and sick are exempt from this observance

There are 3 Masses on Ash Wednesday;
*8:00 AM *12:10 PM *7:00 PM
