As we celebrate Ash Wednesday, we enter into a season of prayer, fasting, and alms-giving in which we refocus our mind and spirit, remembering Jesus’ 40 days in the desert and his sacrifice on the cross for us.

Ash Wednesday isn’t just about marking our foreheads. Fr. Mike Schmitz talks about the significance of Ash Wednesday. Watch Ascension Presents.

If you can not join us, you are invited to participate in our community of faith by sending a prayer request online. We wish you and your loved ones a blessed and prayerful Lenten Season.
