Ash Wednesday Mass with Bishop Madden

Bishop Madden and Fr. Donald Grzymski, OFM Conv. distribute ashes.

February 14, 2018: Marking the beginning of Lent, including the reception of ashes on the forehead to proclaim that we are sinners in need of God’s grace, Bishop Denis J. Madden, Auxiliary Bishop and Urban Vicar for the Archdiocese of Baltimore, was the principal celebrant and homilist at the school wide Ash Wednesday Mass for the community at Archbishop Curley High School (Baltimore, MD). In his homily, Bishop Madden encouraged the use of the opportunity that Lent provides to do the traditional works of Lent: prayer, fasting and alms-giving. He went further to suggest that as we all perform these works, we go beyond our comfort zones, and discover our true selves. The Curley Choir and the Praise Band led the assembly in song. Archbishop Curley students, Michael Gardiner and Kyrian Elekwachi proclaimed the readings.
