Get Glitter Ashes-To-Go This Wednesday On The Red Line

Lent begins with a memorable date

Jim Peich, the church's pastor of faith formation, said this on-the-go approach to Ash Wednesday is a simple way to meet people where they are. You can jolly well guess which side most young people will take.

Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent, a 40-day Christian season of fasting and prayer, commencing a period of spiritual discipline. "Let us fill Valentine's Day with the Lenten spirit", said Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates B. Villegas in a Catholic Bishops' Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) News post. This is to represent Jesus Christ's sacrifice when he went into the desert to pray and fast for the 40 days before he died on the cross.

Catholics are one of the Christian denominations around the world to observe Ash Wednesday today, marking the beginning of the lent period. A traditional Ash Wednesday service will be held at the church at 6:30 p.m.at 129 Woods Mill Rd.

Oubre has been coordinator for one month so this is his first time setting up the Ash Wednesday event at this college.

Valentine's Day will next fall on Ash Wednesday in 2024.

The holiday, which date changes every year, celebrates the resurrection of Jesus Christ and is marked with a number of unique traditions, including painting eggs and Easter egg hunts. The ash is rubbed on the foreheads of devotees with a cross sign to the accompaniment of the words "Repent, and believe in the Gospel" or "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return".

During Lent, many believers give up something they love, such as eating chocolates or other candies, as a way of replicating Christ's journey into the desert for 40 days.

- As part of fasting through Lent, Catholics will not eat meat on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday and all the Fridays throughout Lent, in accordance with the Code of Canon Law. Many people give up certain foods and activities in observance of Lent and this is especially done on Ash Wednesday.

"In view of the significance of Ash Wednesday, the obligations of fast and abstinence are naturally the priority in the Catholic community", the diocese said.
