Ash Wednesday Services

3 crossesAsh Wednesday services will be held at 7 am, noon, and 6 pm on Wednesday, March 6 in the St. Matthew Sanctuary.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. Lent is a time for personal reflection and renewal of the soul. Many Christians observe a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline.

During the Ash Wednesday service, participants receive on their foreheads a mark of the cross, made with the ashes of the previous year’s palm leaves.

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.
