Wednesday next, 18th February, is ASH WEDNESDAY, the first day of Lent. Mass in Quin at 10am and Clooney at 7.30pm. Holy ashes will be distributed at each Mass.
The season of Lent is a period of preparation for Easter, the great feast of the Christian Church. This year Easter Sunday falls on 5th April.
Ash Wednesday is a day of Fast and Abstinence. (Along with Good Friday, it is the only other day in the year when the rules of fasting and abstinence apply).
