A different Ash Wednesday

 For all my Catholic friends, and others who celebrate Ash Wednesday, how did you receive your ashes:

The normal way, applied to the forehead?

Sprinkled on the crown of the head?

Applied with a Q-tip or cotton swab?

Did not distribute ashes?

Your church is still closed or greatly restricted by government mandate?

Please share


  1. Sprinkled on the crown of our heads.

  2. placed on crown of head - Three masses at my parish. One in the morning, two in the evening. Many, many people at the 6 PM, mostly young. Most of the churches in the area decided to stay closed today due to the snow storm.
