About the Podcast

In The Bible in a Year podcast, Fr. Mike Schmitz walks you through the entire Bible in 365 episodes, providing commentary, reflection, and prayer along the way.

Unlike any other Bible podcast, Ascension’s Bible in a Year podcast follows a reading plan inspired by The Great Adventure Bible Timeline, a ground-breaking approach to understanding salvation history developed by renowned Catholic Bible scholar Jeff Cavins. For each period in the timeline, Jeff will join Fr. Mike for a special episode that will help you understand the context of each reading.

With this podcast, you won’t just read the Bible in a year … you’ll finally understand how all the pieces of the Bible fit together to tell an amazing story that continues in your life today!

Listen and…

  1. Read the ENTIRE Bible
  2. Feel more confident about your understanding of Scripture
  3. Experience the transformative power of God’s Word in your daily life
  4. Start seeing the world through the lens of Scripture

Each 20-25 minute episode includes:

Two to three scripture readings
A reflection from Fr. Mike Schmitz
A guided prayer to help you hear God’s voice in his Word

The Bible contains adult themes that may not be suitable for children - parental discretion is advised.

Lent 2021


Lent Starts  -  Ash Wednesday,  February 17th, 2021

     Ash Wednesday & Good Friday are days of Fast and Abstinence. Fridays in Lent are a day of abstinence. No meat, one large meal, two small meals, no snacking.

Ash Wednesday Liturgies

    • 7:00 AM
      • during brief Liturgy of the Word
    • 9:00 AM
      • During Mass
    • 5:00 PM
      • During brief Liturgy of the Word
    • 7:00 PM
      • During a brief Liturgy of the Word

Ashes will be distributed on the top of the head. The usual practice would be to repeat the formula — “Repent and believe in the Gospel” or “Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return” — to each person as the ashes are sprinkled on the top of their head... Sprinkling ashes on the top of people’s heads, rather than marking foreheads with ashes, is the customary practice at the Vatican and in Italy.
