Ash Wednesday begins March 2

Ash Wednesday

Wednesday, March 2 is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the season of Lent. Lent is the forty days (not including Sundays) leading up to Easter, and is a time set aside in the church year to reflect on our Christian walk.

The Ash Wednesday service will be at 7:00 pm on March 2 in the Sanctuary, and features candlelight, scripture, contemplative music and the imposition of ashes on each person’s forehead as a reminder of our own mortality.

We wear ashes not to brag about our humility or piety, but to mark ourselves as part of the community of faith and recognize how far we are from God’s will for us.

Please come join in the family of faith as we begin our Lenten journey together.
