Day of prayer and penance
Ash Wednesday in the Cathedral will be dedicated to Eucharistic adoration and confessions from 7.45am until after the 7.30pm Mass.
Parishioners are invited to attend Mass on Ash Wednesday or, at least, to pray before the Blessed Sacrament.
There will be a priest on duty in the Cathedral during these 12 hours and available to hear confessions. The ashes, blest during the Masses, will be distributed throughout the day.
We encourage parents to bring their children to the Cathedral to receive the ashes; likewise, please offer a lift to a neighbour or relative who might wish to participate in the Eucharistic adoration.
