Services are scheduled for Wednesday, February 14 at noon and 7pm in the Church. Both services will offer Holy Eucharist with imposition of ashes.
The first of the forty days of Lent, named for the custom of placing blessed ashes on the foreheads of worshipers at Ash Wednesday services. The ashes are a sign of penitence and a reminder of mortality, and may be imposed with the sign of the cross. Ash Wednesday is observed as a fast in the church year of the Episcopal Church.
