Instead, this year, we will be copying how the Pope receives the Ashes in the Vatican. That is by sprinkling Ashes on the crown of the head... no touch necessary.
We look forward to St Nicholas' Primary 6 pupils and their teachers joining us for the 11am Mass in St Andrew's on 2nd March.
It is hoped that the Mass will be live streamed through to all the other pupils and their teachers in their classrooms with the opportunity for ashes to be received in the school.
Please note that there is no 10am Mass that day.
