ASH WEDNESDAY

ASH WEDNESDAY at BISHOP KEARNEY

 

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Lent is a time when Catholics prepare for the resurrection of Jesus on Easter. The ashes we receive on our forehead in the shape of a cross serve as an outward sign of our sinfulness and need for penance by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline.
