Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday falls on March 1 this year and marks the beginning of the Lenten season.  Lent is a time of reflection.  It is a time of generosity and, most importantly, a time of sacrifice.  As Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate, we strive to be generous of our time and resources each and every day.

Ash Wednesday/Lenten Prayer Petitions

During Lent we can reach out to each other through prayer.  Please send me your Lenten prayer needs so they can be lifted up in prayer every day of Lent at the National Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows.
We also encourage you to sign up and have a spiritual reflection e-mailed to you each day of Lent.
