IMPOSITION OF ASHES

ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE

7:30 p.m.

Sanctuary

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

Ash Wednesday emphasizes two themes: our sinfulness before God and our human mortality. The service focuses on both themes, helping us to realize that both have been triumphed through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We will host an imposition of ashes, where the sign of the cross is rubbed onto the forehead with ashes. A small card or piece of paper will also be distributed on which each person writes a sin or hurtful or unjust characteristic. The cards are then brought to an urn to be burned with the palm branches from last year's Palm Sunday.

We hope you will join us!
