Ash Wednesday Service
March 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
We invite you to come to the altar of Christ at one of the two services on Ash Wednesday, March 2, at 12 Noon and 7 p.m., to receive the imposition of ashes, to hear the call to a devout and Holy Lent and to receive God’s mercy in the form of Christ’s Body and Blood.
Ash Wednesday is also one of two fast days in the Church, the other being Good Friday. Fasting helps us keep in mind the plight of those who don’t have enough to eat, and also focuses our attention on the need to be “hungry” for the Gospel. Young children and anyone with special medical needs should not attempt to fast. The rest of us can gain much spiritually by submitting ourselves to this discipline of a “liquids only” fast from sunrise to sundown.
