On February 22 we will observe Ash Wednesday with three services at All Saints’, at 7:00 a.m., noon, and 7:00 p.m.
Ash Wednesday marks the first day of Lent. On Ash Wednesday, ashes made from the palm fronds from the previous Palm Sunday are blessed and used by the priest to mark a cross on the foreheads of the faithful as a sign of conversion and penitence. The ashes symbolize the fragility and mortality of our lives and our humble need to be redeemed by the mercy of God.
Please join us with humility and reverence on Ash Wednesday.
