Ash Wednesday Service
The first day of Lent is marked with a special liturgy. The
theme for the day, though not for all of Lent, is that we stand as sinners condemned to die, but for God's grace. This is symbolized by the imposition of ashes on the forehead, with the words, "You are dust and to dust you shall return." In the Old Testament, ashes were a sign of penitence (feeling regretful at offenses) and mourning.
Ash Wednesday is one of two days of special observance
(the other being Good Friday) for which fasting is recommended.
Future Dates: 2/26/2020 at 12 Noon and 7:00 pm
