Ash Wednesday Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral

Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent and 46 days until Easter for Western Christians.

Ironically, I was running errands and passed by St. Patrick’s Cathedral and decided to celebrate Ash Wednesday Mass there and receive my ashes as a matter of convenience in the event that I would be unable to go to my local parish later. Since it is a NYC landmark and the seat of the Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York, the church was filled with tourists and churchgoers.

The Cathedral is currently under construction and has Neo-Gothic architectural style which led it to remind me of the Sagrada Familia in Spain.
