Ash Wednesday 2016

Bishop Dennis Sullivan will be main celebrant and homilist at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception 12:05 p.m. Mass.  Ashes will be distributed.

The season of Lent, which has been observed since the fourth century, begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1, and lasts until the Mass of the Lord’s Supper (Holy Thursday), April 13.

During the March 1 service, Bishop Sullivan also will bless Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Rice Bowls that will be distributed to those in attendance. CRS Rice Bowl is the Lenten program of Catholic Relief Services, the official international development and humanitarian relief agency of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, that helps Catholics in the United States live out the Lenten pillars of prayer, fasting and almsgiving in solidarity with our poorest brothers and sisters.
