Ash Wednesday – February 26

Each year the Season of lent begins with Ash Wednesday.  It is a time of repentance, recognizing our mortality and aligning ourselves with God for the Lenten journey ahead. We call it Ash Wednesday because the Christian tradition is to mark our foreheads with ashes of repentance. This year there will be three opportunities for you to receive the imposition of ashes.
Ash Wednesday, Wednesday February 26th. Guided Prayer Times: 7am-7:30pm, 12pm-12:30pm. Chapel. Ash Wednesday Service, 7:15pm-8:00pm. Sanctuary.
 
Guided Prayer Times
7:00 AM – 7:30 AM, 12:00 PM – 12:30 PM
Chapel
These are a guided time of prayer, not a service. When you enter you will pick up a prayer guide, take as much time as you like, and then step forward for the imposition of ashes. You might stay five minutes or 30 minutes. 
 
Ash Wednesday Service
7:30 PM – 8:15 PM
Sanctuary
This is a 45 minute service including music, scripture, a homily, and concluding with the imposition of ashes. It is a beautiful, quiet, somber service and the perfect way to begin your Lenten journey.
