Where do Ash Wednesday's ashes come from?

If you see something like this around your home... 


... please remove the palm branch, put it in your car and bring it to Mass with you this weekend where, in many parishes, you'll find a basket or a box for collecting blessed palm branches from last year's Palm Sunday celebration...



Those old, dried palm branches will be burned and made ready for blessing and imposition on our foreheads on Ash Wednesday which falls, this year, on February 22...



...ashes marking us as those in need of God's mercy this Lent...
