Ash Wednesday 

February 14, 2024

As the first day of Lent, Ash Wednesday is a time for reflecting on our humanity, sins and mortality.
Ash Wednesday is about refocusing and realigning ourselves in relationship to God and one another. We must encounter our sinfulness and frailty not with shame and blame but with honesty and truth, trusting that God receives our confession.
