February 26 // 7-8PM
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a season of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. The service is very experiential with a marking of the cross on worshippers’ foreheads, calling us each into repentance. By observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days. Lent is usually observed by going without something, or fasting.
