Catholic Parishes Gear Up for Another COVID Lent

Filipino Catholics receive ashes during Ash Wednesday 2020 in Paranaque, Philippines. The Vatican recommended in 2021 that ashes be sprinkled on the head rather than marking the forehead due to the pandemic.

Catholic parishes are helping the faithful, both digitally and in person, to follow Jesus Christ more closely even as the pandemic continues.
