SAINT HELEN CATHOLIC SCHOOL CELEBRATION ST. PATRICK DAY 2022
The Holy Day of Ash Wednesday
Ash Wednesday is a Christian holy day of fasting, prayer, self-denial, and repentance of past wrongdoings. The Day of Ashes marks the beginning of the penitential Lenten season. Many Christians attend special church services and read scriptures on Ash Wednesday.
This year’s Ash Wednesday is March 2, 2022. Our Catholic Church enters the season of Holy Lent started with Ash Wednesday. We begin each Lent with a stirring call a repentance and a reminder of our mortality. The blessed ashes are “imposed’ on our foreheads with the shapes of the cross today as a sign of conversion, penance, fasting and human mortality. May God bring us to a deeper relationship with Him and one another in this time of Holy Lent by praying, fasting, and almsgiving.
