Ash Wednesday - 1 March 2017

Ash Wednesday is the first day of the forty days of Lent. It is an important and solemn day in our church calendar.
At services today, priests will mark people's foreheads with ashes. The ashes are to remind us of our mortality and to encourage a spirit of humility and penitence.

Lent is a time to examine our lives and make changes for the better.
