Ash Wednesday will be different for Us this year amid COVID-19 concerns. This year’s Ash Wednesday, we are offering a drive-thru “ash service” where you can receive blessings and even ashes without leaving the safety of your car.
Ash Wednesday, in the Christian church, the first day of Lent, occurring six and a half weeks before Easter (between February 4 and March 11, depending on the date of Easter). Ash Wednesday is a solemn reminder of human mortality and the need for reconciliation with God and marks the beginning of the penitential Lenten season. It is commonly observed with ashes and fasting.
