Ash Wednesday

On Ash Wednesday we begin our forty-day journey toward Easter with a day of fasting and repentance.  Marking our foreheads with dust, we acknowledge that we die and return to the earth.  At the same time, the dust traces the life-giving cross indelibly marked on our foreheads at baptism.

St. John’s provides two opportunities to receive ashes.  Deacon Tom Snyder will administer ashes, drive-by in your car, on the Circle from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  At 7:30 p.m. ashes will be administered by Pastor K as part of our Ash Wednesday service of Holy Communion.
