Preparations for Ash Wednesday at local churches

Priests at local churches have requested their congregations to handover blessed palms that they may have at their homes so that these can be used at the Ash Wednesday Mass on Feb.18.

Ash Wednesday marks the start of the Lenten season for Christians, a  time when they are called to reflect on their shortcomings and lapses and improve their lives. It is a time when the church focuses on the tribulations of Jesus that led to his death on the cross.

The Ash Wednesday service is a symbolic reminder for people that the human body returns to nothingness after death and the need to lead a good life.
