Ash Wednesday marks the start of the holy season of Lent, a time for reflection and repentance in preparation for the celebration of Easter. For centuries, Christians have received a cross of ashes on the forehead as a reminder of mortal failings and an invitation to receive God’s forgiveness.

  • Early Morning Ashes are offered from 6:30-9:00am. All are invited to drive up to the covered west entrance off the parking lot and receive the imposition of ashes with prayer while remaining in their car.
  • Traditional Ash Wednesday Service with imposition of ashes is in the Sanctuary at 7:30 pm. All are invited to begin this journey through the Lenten Season in worship together.
