Ash Wednesday service, Feb 14
Two options are available for the imposition of ashes on Ash Wednesday, February 14.
At 9 a.m., a brief, quiet time of prayers and music will be held in the sanctuary. You can receive ashes by 9:15 and go, or stay and pray as long as you like.
At 7 p.m., a fuller service, including special music from the choir, will be held.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten season of penitence, with a focus on personal sacrifice and greater devotion to God. During Lent, we follow the footsteps of Jesus from the beginning to the brutal end of his ministry. Observing Lent helps prepare us for the glory of Easter.
