Lent is a time for looking at our lives and finding both the presence and the absence of God. We thank Him for his Grace through our relationship with Jesus, but we take this time to pause and reflect on how we have weakened this relationship though sin. On Ash Wednesday we are signed with ashes to show our recognition that we need repentance. It is an important ritual and, as you can see below, we will make every opportunity help you receive them. Please note however we also will have many hours for confession. What better day to ask for the Lord’s mercy and forgiveness.
7:00 a.m.: Mass with distribution of ashes
11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Confessions
