This event has passed.

Ash Wednesday begins Lent with a call to pay attention to the gap between how we are living and God’s way of wholeness and life. 

As part of acknowledging the reality of sin and death, we will put ashes in the shape of the cross on each others’ foreheads, while saying “Remember you are dust, and to dust you shall return” — in other words, life is short and the fime for change is now.
