February 22: Ash Wednesday

Wednesday, February 22, 19:00 (7:00 P.M.)
Sung Mass in the Extraordinary Form
for Ash Wednesday
Celebrant: Rev. Carl N. Gismondi, Jr., F.S.S.P.

The Brothers of the Little Oratory in San Diego have been invited by Fr. Gismondi, pastor of St. Anne's, to sing the Gregorian chant propers and ordinary for the ceremonies of Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent. On Ash Wednesday, the faithful are signed with the blessed ashes and are sternly reminded: Remember O man, that dust thou art, and to dust thou shalt return. (Gen. 3:19). Let us then cast aside what is transitory and aim at the eternal: Truth, Beauty, and Goodness.
