Ash Wednesday

... and the start of Lent

On Ash Wednesday we begin to embrace the Season of Lent through the sign of receiving ashes on our heads.

Ashes will be distributed at three different venues on Wednesday:

  • During Mass at 10.00am in Sacred Heart Church;
  • and also Mass at 7.00pm in Holy Family Church.

Please also remember that Ash Wednesday is a Day of Fasting (cut down on the amount of food we eat) and Abstinence (eat no meat or, for any vegetarians and vegans, keep to a simple diet on this day).
