Ash Wednesday

February 14

Lent, the forty-day season of prayer, sacrifice and almsgiving in preparation for the joyous celebration of Easter, begins on this day. Parishes throughout the Fall River Diocese will mark the start of Lent with the traditional rite of distribution of ashes. Ashes, symbolic of penance, are blessed and distributed as a reminder that Lent is a time for repentance and spiritual renewal.

Bishop da Cunha will celebrate the 12:05 p.m. Mass on Ash Wednesday at St. Mary’s Cathedral, 327 Second St., Fall River, during which he will bless and distribute ashes to congregants, marking for them the start of their Lenten journey.
