Ash Wednesday Service

Date: Wednesday 14 February

Time: 12:15

Place: Summerall Chapel

We will conduct the annual Ash Wednesday service marking the beginning of Lent (40 days of preparation towards Good Friday). While not all Christian denominations / traditions observe Ash Wednesday, all Christendom observes Lent. During Lent it is commonly customary for Christians to observe the season by exercising some expression of spiritual discipline, be it fasting, abstaining from some personal indulgence or engaging in extra times of prayer. While these practices are not mandatory, they are a means of personal reflection on the sacrifice of Christ at Calvary.
