Ash Wednesday Service

01 Mar 2017 | 07:00 pm - 08:00 pm

Join us for our Ash Wednesday service as we begin the Lenten journey towards Easter. Ash Wednesday is a day of repentance, but it is also a call to reflection, meditation, prayer, and preparation.  We prepare and turn toward God, so that we are ready for the renewal that awaits us in Easter.  It is the prayer of the Psalmist that puts our wish to words: “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me” (Psalm 51:10).  At the service, those who wish to participate will be invited to come forward for marking the forehead with the sign of the cross.

This year we will also have the chapel open in the morning from 7:30-9 a.m. for those wishing to receive the imposition of ashes at that time.
