Ash Wednesday
Wednesday, March 5, 2014 All Day
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the holy Season of Lent.  

Lent is a six-week season of penance, reflection, and fasting, which prepares us to celebrate Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday when we attained redemption. Ashes are a symbol of penance made sacramental by the blessing of the Church, and they help us develop a spirit of humility and sacrifice. The imposition of ashes is an ancient penitential practice symbolizing our dependence upon God's mercy and forgiveness. 

Ash Wednesday is a day of fast (only one full meal and two smaller ones) and abstinence (NO meat) in the Catholic Church. 

Ash Wednesday Masses with distribution of ashes in the Chapel of St. Basil: 

7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

 

Cost Free
Location Chapel of St. Basil
