Ash Wednesday Worship

Wednesday, March 1 at 6:30 pm

Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent, marking the 40 days when Christ fasted in the wilderness, before Satan tempted Him. In the Bible, ashes help us remember our mortality and frailty resulting from the Fall. They are also used as a symbol of sorrow and repentance. When we put ashes on our foreheads in the sign of the cross, we participate in a visible reminder of our condition, and the power of the cross to change that condition forever.
