Ash Wednesday Service

  • Faith Community Church 115 South Morrissey Avenue Santa Cruz, CA, 95062 United States (map)

Join us as we are marked with ashes. Service held at Faith Community Church.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent: a time of penitence, fasting and prayer, in preparation for the great Feast of the Resurrection. On this day we receive ashes on our foreheads as a sign of sorrow and repentance for our own sin, and as a reminder that the wages of sin is death. But as we are marked with ashes in the same manner that we were signed with the cross in Baptism, we are also reminded of the life we share in Jesus Christ. It is in this sure hope that we begin the journey of the forty days of Lent, that by hearing and answering our Savior’s call to repent, we may enter fully into the joyful celebration of his resurrection.
