What times the ashing?

Memento Mori
Actual question. Someone asked me, "What time is the ashing?"

Tomorrow at St. John the Evangelist Church we will have Mass with "ashing" at 7:00am. For the time conscious, the Mass will last no longer than 35 minutes, tops.

At the Paris-Yates Chapel on the campus of Ole Miss, Brad, a Lutheran and an Episcopalian (stop me if you heard this before) will host an ecumenical service with "ashing" at 12:00pm.

At 5:30, the last "ashing" service will be held at St. John the Evangelist. The service will follow confessions from 4:00pm until 5:15pm. Again, for the time conscious, the service will last not longer than 30 to 35 minutes.
