Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, a season of self-examination, repentance and preparation for Easter. Since the Middle Ages, Christians have observed the start of Lent by having their foreheads marked in ash with the sign of the cross as a gesture of penitence and as a recognition of mortality.

All are welcome to this service at which the Eucharist will be celebrated and ashes will be offered.
