Noon: Traditional Ash Wednesday Service in the Sanctuary
We'd love to have you join us as we begin the season of Lent in a holy way.
Ashes To Go: Join us in the parking lot west of the church building at St. Paul's for a brief but powerful experience of prayer with the imposition of ashes. This walk- up style imposition of ashes makes it possible, even for busy people, to start lent in a holy way. A flier with additional prayers and resources will be available. This only takes a few minutes. We'll have you back on your way in no time!
Traditional Ash Wednesday Services - Join us traditional Ash Wednesday services at Noon or 7pm. This powerful service includes the imposition of ashes, an inspiring message, and communion. At 7pm we will also offer music by our wonderful choir.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent, our time of preparation and introspection leading up to the great celebration of Easter. On this day we begin this six-week journey with the imposition of ashes on our foreheads to the words, "Remember you are dust, and to dust you shall return." We remember our mortality and consider whether we are using this precious gift of life in the best way we can. This is a time to reconsider our goals, reevaluate our priorities and reconcile ourselves to the God who made us and will one day call us home. We invite you to join us as we observe a holy Lent. Come get inspired!
