Ash Wednesday Service

March 6, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Beginning on Wednesday, 3/6, is the liturgical season of Lent. As one theologian has written, “Lent is a season of preparation and repentance during which we anticipate Good Friday and Easter. Just as we carefully prepare for big events in our personal lives, such as a wedding or commencement, Lent invites us to make our hearts ready for remembering Jesus’ passion and celebrating Jesus’ resurrection.” March 6 is Ash Wednesday, for which ashes commemorate both the dust from which Adam and Eve were created in the Genesis story, the transience of our own lives (“ashes to ashes. . .”), and also the cross of Jesus.  Please join us at 6pm at St. Pauls that evening at our Ash Wednesday service for what will be a quiet time of reflection, repentance, and contemplation.
