There will still be significant restrictions, at least for the beginning of Lent which begins with Ash Wednesday February 17th.
Physical contact in giving ashes is not possible this year. However, Fr. Frank will bless ashes on Ash Wednesday and samples will be made available for parishioners who wish to obtain blessed ashes. The church will be open from 9 am until 11 am, and in the afternoon from 4 pm to 7:30 pm. Parishioners are welcome to stop by during those times, take a packet of ashes, place some on one’s forehead and take the rest home for others.
