Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the Christian season of Lent, observed with fasting, prayer, and repentance. The ashes are an ancient sign which speaks to the frailty and uncertainty of human life and which mark the penitence of the Christian community as a whole. All are welcome to join us on Wednesday, 6 March, at 12:15 pm in St John's Chapel for this liturgy of reconciliation.
