Ash Wednesday – February 18

Ashes will be distributed only during these Masses.

Fasting makes sense if it really chips away at our security and, as a consequence, benefits someone else, if it helps us cultivate the style of the good Samaritan, who bent down to his brother in need and took care of him...fasting, is a sign of becoming aware of, and taking responsibility for injustice and oppression.
— Pope Francis, Ash Wednesday 2014
