Ash Wednesday, Feb. 13, 2013

The Fellowship of St. Alban will have low mass and imposition of ashes at 5pm, Good Shepherd church.

There will be no music in keeping with the beginning of the penitential season of Lent.

Ashes are a symbol of mourning, and this is fitting both for the start of Lent, as well as for the news of Pope Benedict XVI's decision to retire.

We send the Holy Father our love and devotion.

Our Ordinary, Msgr. Steenson, has made this statement.  He points out that we members of the Ordinariate are in a particular way the spiritual children of His Holiness.
