Sr Josie, Canossian Sister, distributes ashes during Ash Wednesday service.

Grant, O Lord, that we may begin with holy fasting
this campaign of Christian service,
so that, as we take up battle against spiritual evils,
we may be armed with weapons of self-restraint.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ,
your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God for ever and ever.

Amen.

(collect – Ash Wednesday)
