Ash Wednesday Service

March 6 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Ash Wednesday services are held at 7:30 am, 12pm and 5:30 pm at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church.  Ash Wednesday is the first day of the Season of Lent. It occurs 46 days (40 fasting days, if the six Sundays, which are not days of fast, are excluded) before Easter.  Jesus spent 40 days fasting in the desert.  Lent originated as a mirroring of this, a special season of devotion as preparation for Easter.  This service includes the imposition of ashes and Holy Eucharist.

All are welcome.
