On Ash Wednesday, we will have Mass and Imposition of Ashes at:
7am, 12:15pm, 4pm, 7:30pm
The 4pm Mass is our "Ash Wednesday for Kids" service, which is specially geared towards families with children. The 7:30pm service is a Choral Mass featuring our Cathedral Choirs.
Ash Wednesday is the first of the forty days of Lent, named for the custom of placing blessed ashes on the foreheads of worshippers. The ashes are a sign of penitence and a reminder of mortality, and are imposed with the sign of the cross.
