Ash Wednesday is February 17. This marks the first day of Lent, our Catholic season of penance and preparation for Easter. Join us for one of the following services:
- 9 am Mass and Ashes
- 5:30 pm Liturgy of the Word and Ashes (no communion)
- 7 pm Mass and Ashes
Registration is required. Please register at https://sjtbcc.org/mass-registration/. Anyone who comes may receive ashes. As a precaution during the pandemic please bow your head and the ashes will be sprinkled on your hair.
Ash Wednesday is a holy day of fasting and abstinence for adults ages 18-59. Church law specifies that a fast allows one full meal plus two smaller meals that together would not make a full meal.
