Ash Wednesday



St Lawrence Collegiate Church – Birgu

Every year, the Archpriest and Collegiate Chapter of the church of St Lawrence in Birgu, very kindly invite the Association to take part in the Ash Wednesday church function.

Members of the Order gathered at Santa Scolastica Monastery at 5.45 p.m. for the translation of the revered Reliquary of the Holy Face of Christ in procession, along with the Collegiate Chapter Members from the Chapel to the Church.

This was followed by Holy Mass where the traditional ritual of the blessing of the ashes were then given and distributed to the congregation.
