Ash Wednesday Services   

Ash Wednesday services on March 6 will be held at noon and at 6:00 p.m.   Ash Wednesday is a Christian holy day of prayer, fasting, and repentance and the first day of Lent – which is the period of self-restraint and abstention for Christians prior to Easter.  Ash Wednesday derives its name from the placing of repentance ashes on the foreheads of participants to either the words “Repent, and believe in the Gospel” or the dictum “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.”  Both services will include the imposition of ashes.
