Christians gather on Ash Wednesday to mark the beginning of the Lenten journey to Easter. Pastor Peter Marty preaches for these services of Holy Communion in the Sanctuary.
On this solemn day, you’ll receive, if you’d like, an ashen cross on the forehead, a powerful reminder of mortality and sin. It’s an invitation to make each day a new beginning, in which we are washed in God’s mercy and forgiveness.
This 45-minute service is a meditative respite in the work day.
