Ash Wednesday

We begin the Season of Lent this week with Ash Wednesday. There will be Mass with the distribution of ashes at 10am and 7pm. Ash Wednesday is a day of fasting (only one full meal) and abstinence (no red meat). Please take a copy of the Lent information sheet. Our parish focus last year was “Participation in the Eucharist”. This year’s focus is “Growth in Holiness through Prayer.” During this Lent let’s keep these two themes in mind—through our deeper participation at Mass may we grow together in holiness of life. 

The Bishops of Scotland have established the Friday after Ash Wednesday as an annual Day of Prayer for those who have suffered abuse. Our Mass this Friday will be offered up for them.
