ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICE SET FOR MARCH 1

All are invited to Bethany’s Ash Wednesday Service Wednesday, March 1 at 7 PM.

Ash Wednesday marks the first day of the Lenten Season, 46 days before Easter. The name comes from the practice of blessing ashes made from palm branches blessed on the previous year’s Palm Sunday. During the service, the ashes are placed on the heads of participants.

In the Lenten Season, believers prepare for the Holy Week before Easter through prayer, doing penance, repentance of sins, almsgiving, atonement and self-denial.
