BRADFORD Cathedral will mark the season of Lent with an Ash Wednesday service and weekly study course.

The service on Wednesday, March 2 and the four-week Lent course will be accessible both in-person and online.

The cathedral will hold an Ash Wednesday Eucharist at 7pm, in addition to their two regular services on the Wednesday at 8.15am and 10.15am.

Lent is the 40-day period that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter Sunday.

Bradford Cathedral will also be holding a four-week Lent course on Tuesdays from 7pm, from March 8 and continuing, after a one-week gap, on March 22 and 29 and April 5.

The Reverend Canon Paul Maybury, Acting Dean of Bradford, said: “We look forward to the annual season of Lent as a time of growth and transformation."
