Ash Wednesday

Published on February 16, 2021

February 17th is Ash Wednesday.

Blessed Ashes in sealed plastic bags have been available for collection from the Church since Monday February 15th.

To help prevent the spread of infection:

One sealed plastic bag per household.

Please DO NOT share ashes from your bag with other households.

There’s also an A3 folded page on which you’ll find a Prayer Service for use at home on Ash Wednesday – use all or parts of it – and on the back there are some child friendly activities.

The Trocaire Boxes – almost an Irish Lenten tradition at this stage – are also available.
