Ash Wednesday Schedule


Wednesday, February 14, Ash Wednesday is a day of Fast and Abstinence from meat. On this day, Christians throughout the world pause to mark their foreheads with Ashes. It is an outward sign of their inner desire to reform their lives. The three hallmarks of Lent are Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving. As we begin this holy season of Lent, take a minute to reflect on how you will incorporate these three practices into your daily Lenten journey.

Ashes will be distributed during each of the Masses on Ash Wednesday.

Masses will be celebrated at 6:30 am, 8:00 am, 12:00 pm and 7:00 pm.
