Ash Wednesday Services
Ashes are an ancient sign of penitence. From the Middle Ages it became the custom to begin Lent by being marked in ash with the sign of the cross. The reminder that we are dust turns our attention to the creative power of God, and God’s ability to heal the brokenness in our lives when we offer that brokenness to God. That turning to God is the work of Lent, preparation for the celebration of Easter.

*What is Ashes to Go?
Trinity offers a time for all to pause, be if for just 10 or 15 minutes, to remember our faith when schedules make it hard to make time for a longer service on a busy Wednesday. Stop in anytime between noon and 1 pm to receive ashes from Mother Meghan Ryan.
