Ash Wednesday Mass

In Washington, DC, Washington Archbishop Donald W. Wuerl celebrated Ash Wednesday Mass at the Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle. Lent, in most Christian denominations, is the forty-day liturgical season of fasting and prayer before Easter. Ash Wednesday is a time for repentance and it marks the beginning of Lent. The Cathedral of St. Matthew the Apostle plays a leading role in the nation's capital as the center of its Roman Catholic community.
