Farewell

Farewell to the Alleluia

All Grades

1:30 p.m. in the church

Alleluias are joyful proclamations which we put away during the more contemplative and solemn season of Lent. Lent is a time of preparation for personal and collective transformation.

Please join us as we say farewell to the alleluia until it bursts forth into glory during the Mass of the Easter Vigil.

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday signifies the beginning of Lent, a season of fasting and prayer.  Ashes on the forehead symbolize the dust from which God made us. As ashes are placed on the forehead, the priest may speak the words: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”
