Join us for worship services on Wednesday, March 6 at 12 pm and 7 pm.
Ashes symbolize several aspects of our human existence:
Ashes remind us of God's condemnation of sin, as God said to Adam, "Dust you are and to dust you shall return" (Genesis 3:19).
Ashes suggest cleansing and renewal. They were used anciently in the absence of soap. Even on Ash Wednesday, this most penitential day, we receive ashes in the form of the cross, the same symbol placed on our bodies with water in our baptism. Even in this ashen mark of death, we anticipate the new life of Easter.
Ashes remind us of the shortness of human life.
