Today marks Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent and a time when Christians are called to begin an inner journey of conversion of heart through prayer, fasting and charitable works.
The schedule of Masses, with distribution of ashes, at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul in Philadelphia is as follows: 12:05, 12:35 (in the chapel) and 5:15 p.m.; confessions are at 11:30 a.m. Find a local parish church near you, here.
See CatholicPhilly.com’s Lent 2016 section for tools to help you pray and live deeply these 40 days.
