Ash Wednesday

At the beginning of Lent, on Ash Wednesday, ashes are blessed during Mass, after the homily. The blessed ashes are then "imposed" on the faithful as a sign of conversion, penance, fasting and human mortality.

The ashes are made from the palms used at the previous Passion Sunday ceremonies.

The act of putting on ashes symbolizes fragility and mortality, and the need to be redeemed by the mercy of God. Far from being a merely external act, the Church has retained the use of ashes to symbolize that attitude of internal penance to which all the baptized are called during Lent.


Abstinence from eating meat is to be observed on all Fridays during Lent.

This applies to all persons 14 and older.

The law of fasting on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday applies to all Catholics from age 18 through age 59.


The Way of the Cross


The Stations of the Cross is a Lenten devotion that offers witness to Jesus’ Passion and Death. At each station we use our senses and our imagination to reflect prayerfully upon Jesus’ suffering, Death, and Resurrection, and to simply experience the visual images to reflect on Christ’s love for us.

The Stations of the Cross


The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step Catholic devotion that commemorates Jesus Christ's last day on Earth as a man. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of His last day, beginning with His condemnation. The stations are commonly used as a mini pilgrimage as the individual moves from station to station. At each station, the individual recalls and meditates on a specific event from Christ's last day. Specific prayers are recited, then the individual moves to the next station until all 14 are complete.

The Stations of the Cross are commonly found in churches as a series of 14 small icons or images. They can also appear in church yards arranged along paths. The stations are most commonly prayed during Lent on Wednesdays and Fridays, and especially on Good Friday, the day of the year upon which the events actually occurred.



Are you between the ages of 12 to 25? Are you open to learning more about the Church’s proposal that your greatest happiness in life is to be found in Jesus Christ?

If the answer is “yes”, Archbishop Leo Cushley would like to invite you to join him on Palm Sunday, 9 April, at a Lenten youth event being held in Perth. There you’ll be joined by many other young people from across Scotland. 

The event is organised by Catholic Youth Service Scotland and will consist of talks by various Catholic speakers with the highpoint of the day being Holy Mass. All are very welcome. Transport to and from Edinburgh is available.
