Ash Wednesday

Wednesday, March 6 at 7:00pm

Calvary UMC Chapel

Calvary United Methodist Church believes all means all. You are God's beloved, and you are welcome here.

Please join us for a solemn service to observe an ancient Christian tradition- the imposition of ashes on those who wish to receive them. You don’t have to be a member of our church or any church to participate or receive ashes.

Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, a season of reflection on our humanity and our need for forgiveness, a time for repentance and penitence, a time for repairing relationships and healing.

For many, Lent is recognised as a time for fasting or giving things up, but today, many people choose to take on new disciplines - praying, volunteering, and becoming involved in new ministries in church or the community.

Join us and begin to observe a meaningful Lenten season.
