Ash Wednesday At Chapelwood

February 26 - various times and locations

Lent begins with Ash Wednesday. On this day, Christians mark their foreheads with ashes in the sign of the cross. The ashes remind us that we are mortal, and that life is fragile. The cross reminds us of the eternal life we share even in the midst of our mortality. As the ashes are placed on our foreheads, we hear the words “remember that you are dust, and to dust you will return.” While is sounds quite morbid, it is an important central lesson of our Christian faith – all things are passing away, including us. While our eternal home is secure in heaven, our life on this earth is limited.
