Ash Wednesday & Lenten Schedule for March
ALL ARE WELCOME
LWC CHAPEL, POS
Ash Wednesday – Mar 06
Masses at 7.00 am; 12.00 noon & 6.00 pm. Ashes will be distributed at all Masses. Prayer Meeting to follow 6.00 pm Mass.
Ash Wednesday takes place 46 days before Easter and opens Lent, a season of fasting, almsgiving and prayer. The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us.
Every Friday – Stations of the Cross
Mar 08 to 29 – 5.00 pm
The Stations of the Cross commemorate Jesus Christ’s last day on Earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. They are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station recalling and meditating on specific events from Christ’s last day.
Every Sunday – Evening Prayer
Mar 10 to 31 – 6.00 pm
We join the Universal Church at Evening Prayer giving thanks for the day just past and making an evening sacrifice of praise to God.
