Fire, Ashes, Renewal

February 14

12:00 Noon – A simple, spoken Ash Wednesday service

7:00 PM – Ash Wednesday Worship
with the burning of Palm Fronds

You are welcome to bring your palm fronds from last Palm Sunday
to be burned and used in the anointing with ashes.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten season – a season of spiritual renewal in anticipation of the celebration of the Cross and Resurrection at Easter.

The Ash Wednesday service is a powerful beginning to the Lenten season, starting a Lenten journey that comes to its conclusion with all the emotions of Palm Sunday with its festive procession with palms and its solemn reading of the passion.
