Ash Wednesday

Posted on February 09, 2021 in: General News

Ash Wednesday Masses will be at: 6:30am & 8:15am and 12:10pm & 7:00pm. 

On Ash Wednesday, we will bless the ashes, and then say communally the statement which helps us begin Lent “Repent and believe the Gospel” or “Remember man that you are dust and unto dust you shall return”.  We will not call anyone forward to receive the sign of ashes, we cannot physically touch anyone so no way to mark the forehead,  and though we are offered the option of sprinkling ashes on your bowed head (on your hair) the doing of this is very difficult given the type of ashes we have available which are very, very fine. 

Several of the masses will be livestreamed and available to be viewed at home at any time throughtout the day.
