"I invite you, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent"
With these words Ash Wednesday begins the forty-day season of Lent. It is marked by special prayers, fasting, acts of devotion, and special liturgies. We will offer three liturgies on Ash Wednesday. At 7:00 am there will be the Ash Wednesday Liturgy & Imposition of Ashes (but no Eucharist). This is a short liturgy for those who are on their way to work or school and will end by 7:30 am. At Noon there will be a quiet, said Mass with a homily and imposition of ashes. Then at 7:00pm, a full choral Mass will be sung also with a homily and imposition of ashes.
This is one of the most important days of our Church year. Please make plans to attend one of our three liturgies so that you can prepare in heart and mindfor the Lenten journey. This spiritual journey prepares us to see the new light of the Resurrection come Easter morning.
Confessions will be heard on Tuesday from 12-1 pm, Wednesday following the 7 am liturgy, or by appointment (contact Father Tripp).
