Ash Wednesday 2021 – 17th February
Ashes will be blessed at the morning masses next Wednesday (Ash Wednesday) in both Banogue and Croom Churches at 9:30 AM.
Small individual packets will be available for collection from both churches during the day. You are welcome to take these home so that family members and neighbours can be blessed.
Ash Wednesday is the beginning of a season of 40 days of prayer, feasting, and works of love. Lent is a special time. It is a time of conversion. Pope Francis emphasises that all of us are called to be creators of the Earth. He tells us that Mother Earth is the poorest of the poor because we have abused her. During the past year, we have seen a huge collective effort by all nations to combat the pandemic. Now, more than ever, we need a combined global effort to save our planet. We all have a part to play in this.
