What is Ash Wednesday?

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of our Lenten journey. Although not a Holy Day of Obligation, we go to church to receive a sign of the cross on our foreheads from ashes (ashes from the blessed palms used on Palm Sunday). This mark is a reminder of our mortality and a call for repentance. The priest blesses the ashes and says,

"Repent and believe in the Gospel".

The message of Ash Wednesday Mass is, "Pray like no one is watching you. Fast like no one is watching you. Do good like no one is watching you. God knows." Something we strive for each and every day; but, it's highlighted on Ash Wednesday to set the tone for Lent.

Ash Wednesday Meal We will be having a simple meal of soup and bread on Ash Wednesday after the 10:00am and 5:15pm Masses. There is a sign-up sheet and crock pot liners in the community room for those willing to bring a pot of meatless soup or volunteer for cleanup.  We hope to see you there! Thank You.
