Ash Wednesday Is This Week

February 20th, 2012 by sjl+

Join Father David and the Church of the Messiah as we observe Ash Wednesday, this Wednesday, February 22. Ash Wednesday is the traditional service which begins the season of Lent, forty days of prayer and fasting which both commemorates Our Lord’s forty days in the wilderness and prepares our hearts to celebrate the Feast of the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The service includes the Litany of Penance, Imposition of Ashes, and the Holy Eucharist. The service begins at 7pm in the Sam R. Marks Chapel at Jacksonville University.
