Ash Wednesday

Our Ash Wednesday service will be Wednesday, March 6 at 7:30 p.m. Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent, a forty-day period of self-examination. During Lent, Christians make their way toward the drama of Holy Week, in which we remember the suffering and death of Jesus on Good Friday and his resurrection on our highest holy day, Easter Sunday.

Our service will include a short message and the imposition of ashes for those who wish to receive them. Ashes are the traditional sign of sorrow and repentance and are also a sign of mortality. They are often prepared from the palm leaves used in worship during the previous year’s Palm Sunday - thus reminding us of how quickly we can go from celebrating Christ’s love and power to participating in those acts which lead to his crucifixion.
