Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday

Please join us for this beautiful evening service, often called The Imposition of the Ashes, that will mark the first day of the Lenten Season in which Christians enter into a period of fasting and prayer that lasts 40 days and 40 nights. This short, contemplative service offers all participants the opportunity to receive ashes on their foreheads (the ashes will be derived from last year's palm crosses, burnt on Shrove Tuesday). The receiving of ashes is an acknowledgement of our mortality that helps us to focus on what is truly important. All are welcome.
