Ash Wednesday Mass Times

Ash Wednesday (the first day of Lent) falls on February 26, 2020.

Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, 46 days before Easter Sunday. Lent is a 40-day season (not counting Sundays) marked by repentance, fasting, reflection, and ultimately celebration. The 40-day period represents Christ’s time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and where Satan tempted him. Lent asks believers to set aside a time each year for similar fasting, marking an intentional season of focus on Christ’s life, ministry, sacrifice, and resurrection.

The following list of Ash Wednesday Services is being progressively updated as 2020 times are received from each parish. If you are looking for an Ash Wednesday service in a specific parish and do not yet see a time listed, please click on the Parish Name to get contact information for the parish.
