Ash Wednesday Service

Wednesday, February 14 – 7:30 pm

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent, a forty-day journey with Jesus (not counting Sundays) of introspection and repentance. It is a prayerful, searching service of preparation. We engage the ancient tradition of placing ashes upon the foreheads of the faithful. The ashes recall both the forming of the first human from the dust of the earth, infused with God’s own breath, along with the words of mortality from Genesis: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust shall return.” Receiving the ashes is completely voluntary. They come from the burning of the extra palm branches from Palm Sunday, and are mixed with healing oil for anointing. We will also celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion and be encouraged for our transformative journey.
