Ash Wednesday - March 1
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent. It is the season of penance, reflection and fasting which prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday, through which we attain redemption. Our foreheads are marked with ashes to humble our hearts and remind us that life passes away on earth. We remember this when we are told, "Remember man that thou art dust and unto dust you shalt return."
We are obligated to fast and abstain from eating meat.
ASH WEDNESDAY SCHEDULE
7:00 am - Mass at St. Paul, Lyons
5:00 pm - Mass at St. Paul, Lyons
7:00 pm - Mass at Holy Name of Jesus, Bushton
