Note on Distribution of Ashes:
Vatican modifies distribution of ashes for Ash Wednesday
By Vatican News
The health situation caused by Covid-19 continues to force changes on daily life, which are also reflected in the Church’s sphere. Ahead of the beginning of Lent, on Wednesday, 17 February, the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments has published a note laying out the procedures Catholic priests around the world are to follow for the distribution of ashes at the start of Lent. The priest will bless the ashes, sprinkle them with holy water and distribute by sprinkling the ashes on each person’s head in silence.
