Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday Service will be held on February 14th at 12:10 and 6:30 pm. Ashes will also be distributed at 9:15 am morning prayer service. 

Ash Wednesday begins Lent, a season of fasting and prayer. It takes place 46 days before Easter Sunday. Ash Wednesday comes from the ancient Jewish tradition of penance and fasting. The practice includes the wearing of ashes on the head. The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us.
