Ash Wednesday, Noon & 7 pm
Ash Wednesday worship services will be held at Noon and 7 p.m. Both services are held in the main church and involve the Imposition of Ashes and Holy Eucharist.
The Noon service is intended to run precisely one hour so as to allow folks taking time off work to be out in a timely fashion. The 7:00pm service features the Choir of St. George's.
Ash Wednesday is the First Day of Lent, the season of the Church year when we prepare for Easter. One of the central rituals is placing a smear of ash on the forehead as a sign of mortality, the need for repentance, and the need for a Savior. At Easter we then celebrate that Savior, Jesus Christ, who died for our sins and was raised for our justification (Romans 4:25)
