Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent

17 Feb 2021, 2:30 p.m.

This year's service is on Zoom and the following prayer will be said as participants sign themselves with the ash provided. 

God our Father,

you create us from the dust of the earth:

grant that these ashes may be for us

a sign of penitence

and a symbol of our mortality;

for it is by your grace alone

that we receive eternal life

in Jesus our Saviour
