Ash Wednesday – the Eucharist with the imposition of ashes

February 14, 2018 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

In the church calendar, Lent is the six weeks before Easter.

This year it begins on the 14th February at St Leonard’s with two services for Ash Wednesday (10.00am and 7.30pm).

Ashing will take place at both services – and this is a poignant reminder of both our mortality and our sinfulness, when we hear the words ‘Remember that you are dust and unto dust you shall return; turn away from sin and be faithful to Christ’ as an ash cross is traced on our foreheads.
