This year, the usual practice of imposing ashes by thumb on the foreheads of parishioners cannot be followed.
Packets of blessed ashes will be distributed at the end of each Mass, and on the front lawns of both churches from 1:00-3:00pm, for parishioners to bring home for themselves and their families. The packets will include a card with a link to our website for prayers to use while imposing the ashes at home, if you wish.
