Ash Wednesday Service
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent in our Christian year. Traditionally in the church, we gather in the sanctuary and learn about the season of Lent, with Ash Wednesday focusing on repentance and prayer. This service ends with the marking of ashes upon the forehead. Ashes are typically prepared by burning the palm branches from the previous Palm Sunday. I have been invited to receive ashes from our friends at St. Clements, as they’ll burn the palms branches from last year’s Palm Sunday to make our ashes for this Lent.
Please plan to join us for this important season and its beginning. Our current Covid-safe protocols will be in place for this service, as on our regular Sunday morning worship services.
