Ash Wednesday-12pm

February 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent, a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline.

Ashes, made by burning the palms from the previous year’s Palm Sunday, are offered to worshipers as a sign of repentence. As the ashes are placed on the forehead, words such as these are spoken: “Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return,” recalling God’s words to Adam in Genesis 3:19
