Ash Wednesday is the first of the forty days of Lent, named for the custom of placing blessed ashes on the foreheads of worshipers at Ash Wednesday service. The ashes are a sign of penitence and a reminder of our mortality. The ashes are usually imposed on the forehead with the sign of the cross.

Join us for a live streamed, virtual Ash Wednesday service at 12:00 noon on February 17.

Ashes to Go: 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Drive down our alleyway, roll down your window, and Fr. Wally will impose ashes on your forehead. It’s a little strange, but so is life in a pandemic. Remember ashes are not a sacrament, but a reminder to actively participate in a holy Lent.
