Ash Wednesday February 14 2018
Lent 2018 begins on Ash Wednesday with three services available in the parish.
Each of them is a eucharist combined with the ceremony of ashing - whereby a cross marked in ash made from last year's palm crosses is marked on the forehead of the believer.
7:30am - an early start Eucharist with ashing at St John's Parish Church to which all who are working are particularly welcome.
12:30 pm at Digswell Village Church for those who prefer a service during the day. <span style="font-size: 1rem;">This forms part of 2 hours of prayer for Ash Wednesday at DVC.</span>
7: 30 pm at Christ the King Church there is a Sung Eucharist with Ashing.
To which all are welcome.
We then spend the next 40 days and 40 nights in the desert with our Lord.
