This is my first post on here, so please don’t kill me if I put this is the wrong category.
I went to an Ash Wednesday (on Wednesday) where I received the ashes before the Mass (as per the Extraordinary Form).
Today, Saturday I helped out with catechesis of our First Communicants wherein the ashing liturgy was mentioned, followed by a Cathechesis Mass open to the public. After the homily the priest invited everyone to come receive the ashes, specifying that people were welcome to receive ashes even if they had previously received on Ash Wednesday.
So my question is essentially two-fold;
1: Are priests allowed to “transfer” the liturgy of the ashes to a Saturday? (I have no idea if the readings and prayers were also transferred)
2: Are we allowed to receive the ashes multiple times, either on Ash Wednesday or otherwise?
