Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a liturgical season that leads up to Easter. During Lent, the Church asks us to surrender ourselves to prayer and to the reading of Scripture, to fasting and to giving alms.
Two Masses will be held, one at 7:30 a.m. in Gillet Convent and another at noon in Villa Maria Hall's Chapel. Ashes will be distributed at both Masses.
Ashes will also be distributed at 4:00 p.m. in the Rotunda or at 7:05 p.m. in Loyola Hall 127.
