Ash Wednesday

Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. It is a day of fasting and abstinence which means that all Catholics are obliged to abstain from meat, and all adults between 16 and 65 are obliged to fast. Ashes will be distributed at all Masses here in the church, which will be at 9.30am and 6.00pm (Extraordi-nary Form), and at the Cathedral at 8am, 10am, 12.45pm, 6pm (Polish) and 7.30pm.
