Ash Wednesday Service & Imposition of Ashes
Wednesday, February 17
Service available on YouTube
Lent begins with a solemn call to fasting and repentance as we begin our journey to the baptismal waters of the cross. The sign of ashes suggests our human mortality and frailty. What seems like an ending is really an invitation to make each day a new beginning, in which we are washed in God’s mercy and forgiveness.
