ASH WEDNESDAY – All parishes and institutions of the Diocese of Paterson will implement the measures directed by the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments as follows:
The Priest says the prayer for blessing the ashes. He sprinkles the ashes with holy water, without saying anything. Then he addresses all those present and only once says the formula as it appears in the Roman Missal, applying it to all in general:
“Repent, and believe in the Gospel”, or “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return”.
The Priest then cleanses his hands, puts on a face mask and distributes the ashes to those who come to him or, if appropriate, he goes to those who are standing in their places. The priest takes the ashes and sprinkles them on the head of each one without saying anything.
Monday and Tuesday, February 15 and 16 – No school
Wednesday, February 17 – Ash Wednesday 9:00 Virtual Mass
Thursday and Friday, February 18 and 19 – Second through eighth grades take NEWA tests.
MONDAY, APRIL 12 – FRIDAY, APRIL 23 – REMOTE LEARNING for students. If you are not back in your home by April 12, your children will have additional quarantining time.
