Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent, a period during which we reflect on our mortality and show repentence for our sins . The services offered on Ash Wednesday include a Eucharist and the imposition of ashes, often accompanied by the words Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return. The ashes are prepared by burning palm leaves from the previous year's Palm Sunday celebrations.
The Cathedral offers 2 services on Ash Wednesday, a said Eucharist at 12:15 pm and a Choral Eucharist at 7 pm. Please join us.
