Ash Wednesday – Feb. 14

Everyone is welcome for the imposition of ashes at any of our three services on Wednesday, February 14.

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent. Its official name is “Day of Ashes,” so called because of the practice of rubbing ashes on one’s forehead in the sign of a cross. Since it is exactly 40 days (excluding Sundays) before Easter Sunday it will always fall on a Wednesday.
