Like many things we’ve experienced over the last year, Lent will look a little different. In consideration of the ongoing pandemic and the need for safety, the Vatican has adopted changes for how ashes will be distributed this year on Ash Wednesday. The priest or person distributing ashes will address those present, reciting “Repent, and believe in the Gospel” or “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return”. Participants will then be invited to come forward to receive ashes. The priest or person distributing then sprinkles the ashes on each person’s head without speaking.
