Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and prepares our hearts for the celebration of new life at Easter.
During the Ash Wednesday service, ashes are spread on foreheads or on hands in the shape of a cross. The ashes signify a time of self-examination, repentance, and return to the God who made us in all our fragile wonder: “from dust you were made and to dust you shall return.”
The service for this day is contemplative and intimate, inviting deep personal reflection through prayer, scripture, song, and coming forward to receive ashes.
The nursery is available for children 6 weeks to two years old.
