Observing the Season: Ash Wednesday

ASH WEDNESDAY
March 1, 2017

Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return. – Genesis 3:19

Spoken services are offered in the morning in the intimacy of the Cathedral’s chapels of St. Martin and St. James. At the afternoon and evening services, celebrated at the High Altar, the choir offers contemplative music befitting this solemn occasion, including Allegri's Miserere.
