Imposition of Ashes

Wednesday, March 1, 2017
Ash Wednesday
8:00 am - 6:30 pm


All are welcome to come through the Fifth Avenue doors throughout the day to have ashes imposed. While here, you may choose to stay for awhile, sitting in one of the pews.

Ashes are imposed as part of the 8am, 12:10pm and 5:30pm liturgies, and also between the services throughout the day. The Fifth Avenue doors will open by 7:30am for those who wish to attend the 8am Liturgy. Please note that the first imposition of ashes for the day will occur during the 8am service. Then, ashes will be imposed after the service (beginning at approximately 8:40am) near the high altar in the center aisle of the church’s nave. Ashes are imposed throughout the morning until we near the 12:10pm service, and then throughout the afternoon between the end of the 12:10pm and the beginning of the 5:30pm liturgies. The last opportunity to receive ashes is during the 5:30pm service.
