Ash Wednesday 2017 Photopost

As always, thanks to all the readers who send in photographs of their Ash Wednesday liturgies. Our headliner is definitely a first for NLM: ash-colored vestments (couleur cendrée) from the Fraternity of St Peter’s church in Lyon, a classically medieval custom of the ancient use of Lyon. We wish you all a blessed and holy Lenten season. Our next photopost will cover the feasts of St Joseph and the Annunciation, and Laetare Sunday, which all fall within a week of each other this year; a request will be posted the week before.

Collegiate Church of St Just - Lyon (FSSP)

Tradition is for the young!

St Catherine Labouré - Middletown, New Jersey

Bethany House Chapel - Singapore
This is a chapel in a home for retired priests; very edifying to see the faithful put up with a bit of crowding to attend the holy Mass on this important day!

St Stephen’s - Portland, Oregon

Parish of the Holy Redeemer - Quezon City, Philippine Islands

Santa Maria degli Angeli - Civitanova Alta, Italy
This church has been hosting the Summorum Pontificum group of Tolentino since their church of the Sacred Heart was damaged in the recent spate of earthquakes.

St Joseph Oratory - Detroit, Michigan (ICK)

St Margaret Mary - Oakland California (ICK)

Parish of St Mary - Kalamazoo, Michigan

And again, tradition is for the young!

St Eugène - Paris, France
home of our friends of the Schola St Cécile
