Ash Wednesday Service
The ancient ritual of the imposition of Ashes on the first day of Lent is the traditional call to Christians to begin a period of sober self-examination. This prepares us for a joyous recommitment to living our lives in gratitude to God on Easter Sunday. This brief service gives each of us an opportunity to accept the ashes as a sign of our frailty and mortality. The ashes also remind us that the Holy Spirit can give new life – even to ashes!
The service begins at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 1.
