Ash Wednesday - Forty days journey in LENT

CMCS Staff received the ash
to prepare their hearts
for this season of Lent
Forty days journey with Jesus.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent.
It is a season of penance, reflection, and fasting which prepares us for Christ's Resurrection on Easter Sunday.

"Remember, Man is dust, and unto dust you shall return."

Ashes are a symbol of penance
made sacramental by the blessing of the Church,
and they help us develop a spirit of humility and sacrifice.
