NORWALK—The doors of St. Matthew Church, 216 Scribner Avenue, Norwalk, will be open from 6 am-9 pm on Ash Wednesday.
“I know people are busy with work, school, after-school activities,” said Msgr. Walter C. Orlowski, pastor. “So we welcome all to come in and receive ashes throughout the day at the top of the following hours: 6 am; 8 am; 10 am; 11 am; 1 pm; 2 pm; 3 pm; 5 pm; 6 pm; 7 pm; 9pm or at one of the five Masses: 7 am; 9 am; 12:10 pm; 4 pm; 7:30 pm. We will have a table in the vestibule of free Lenten resources for children and adults to help you on your 40-day journey to Easter.”
The St. Matthew Ash Wednesday Bus will be on the road Wednesday, February 26 from 10 am-3 pm at the locations in Norwalk, Darien, Southport and Stamford. Anyone who is in the vicinity during the times listed can stop by to receive ashes (we try to keep the schedule moving, but please be aware that times are approximate due to traffic/crowds). The Mobile Ashes-On-the-Move Bus began five years ago as a response to Pope Francis’ call to “meet people wherever they are, outside of the pews in church.”
