Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday is the first day of the season of Lent. On Wednesday 26 February blessed ashes will be marked on our foreheads in the form of a cross. The smudge mark made by the ashes is a visible reminder of the commitment we enter into during Lent and of the forgiveness and strength which is the gift of Jesus to each of us.
