Ash Wednesday Service
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent, the 40 days of fasting and grieving leading up to Easter Sunday. The imposition of ashes reminds us of the ashes from whence we came and the ashes we shall return to. The Ash Wednesday is a meditative, thoughtful service meant to bring our spirits closer to God.
Both the Amity campus and the Downtown campus of Cathedral of the Rockies will host an Ash Wednesday service at 6:00 on February 14th. You will have the opportunity to receive ashes in the sign of a cross on your forehead during the service. It serves as a reminder of the sacrifices made for you by Jesus Christ. Last year’s Palm Sunday branches created this year’s ashes, as is tradition.
Join us in bringing in this season of contemplation and fasting.
