Ash Wednesday

Enjoy the service!

Ash Wednesday is a Christian holy day that marks the beginning of the season of Lent, a time of reflection on where we have not been our best selves and a time to draw closer to God. Receiving ashes on our foreheads is a sign of our human nature and mortality and our connection to God as his beloved children. It is especially meaningful this year in the midst of the pandemic. Because we cannot meet in person as we normally would, the Chaplains have prepared an Ash Wednesday service to share with the community in the safety of their homes with their families. Enjoy the service.

Please note: The Winter Compline service scheduled for this evening has been canceled.
