Lent is near, Ash Wednesday is February 10th and Bishop Richard Malone has a story to share about an Ash Wednesday 30 years ago in today’s “Consider this…Spilled Ashes”. You won’t want to miss this one!
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent in the Roman Catholic Church and Catholics attend Mass on Ash Wednesday to be marked with ashes as a sign of their own mortality.
While all Roman Catholics are encouraged to attend Mass on Ash Wednesday in order to begin the Lenten season with the proper attitude and reflection, Ash Wednesday is not a Holy Day of Obligation. It is, however, a day of fasting and abstinence.
Ash Wednesday Schedule for 2/10/16:
Full mass at 9:00am (with school students)
Ash Service at noon and 3pm
Full mass at 7:00pm
UNITED IN FAITH ~ BUILDING THE BODY OF CHRIST CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
As a parish family, we want to focus on renewed elements of worship, education, faith formation and evangelization. We at St. John Vianney are committed to the future of our parish and so together we must now work collaboratively to address the needs of our St. John Vianney family. It has been our vision to have suffi cient space for our ministries, multi-generational, religious education and formation programs, elementary school and parish social events. After much prayer and planning, the initiative of the Vitality Committee, and the Facility Steering Committee an expansion and renovation plan was proposed for our church facility in response to the new mission and vision.
