Join us for Ash Wednesday Worship at 12 Noon and 7:00 PM with Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion.
Drive Through Ashes are from 3:00-6:00 PM outside the Church.
The ashes, which were a symbol of purification in the Old Testament, remind us that we are mortal. Ashes are placed on the forehead, usually in the sign of a cross, in a ritual known as the Imposition of Ashes. As the ashes are placed on the forehead, words such as these are spoken:
“Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return,”
recalling God’s words to Adam in Genesis 3:19.
