Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent: a time of fasting, prayer, self-examination and preparation for the Easter Feast. Join us for a service of Holy Eucharist that includes the imposition of ashes, an ancient sign of repentance that serves as a reminder of our mortality. Incense is used at this service. Passes are not required.

Presider: The Rev. Canon Jan Naylor Cope
Preacher: The Rev. Canon Dana Colley Corsello
