Mass will be celebrated at 9:00 AM
with the blessing and distribution of ashes.

March 2nd is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Season of Lent for Christians.

The season of Lent is a penitential period given to us by the Church to prepare for forty days to turn back to God, and to prepare for the highest point in the Church’s year of prayer the Sacred Paschal Triduum, celebrating the dying and rising of the Lord Jesus.

Through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving we renew our faith in the One who gave us the hope and promise of salvation.
Ash Wednesday is a day of fasting and abstinence from meat. We are called to do special penance on this day,ponder and meditate on Sacred Scripture, and throughout the season serve by giving alms and doing acts of charity, as we strive for true inner conversion of heart. The Lenten season ends at sundown on Holy Thursday.

Our parish Ash Wednesday Mass, with the blessing and distribution of ashes will be at 9:00 a.m. March 2nd.
