Ash Wednesday Service, February 26th @ 7:30 pm
Ash Wednesday is the first of the 40 days of Lent, which is the season of preparation for our celebration of Easter.
The Nardin Park Methodist will be our guests and joining us for this service. Rev. Melanie Carey, pastor of Nardin Park, will give the message. Our Chancel Choir will provide an anthem.
There will be the imposition of ashes in the shape of a cross on each person’s forehead. This tradition of the application of ashes reminds us of our mortality and repentance of sin. The cross signifying Jesus’ suffering crucifixion on the cross to forgive our sins (Good Friday) and his holy resurrection on the third day (Easter Sunday).
