Ash Wednesday worship service
Feb. 20, 2012
On February 22nd, there will be an Ash Wednesday service in Miller Chapel at 12:20. For centuries, Christians have observed Ash Wednesday on the first day of the Lenten season, a time of deep introspection, intentional discipline, and preparation as Holy Week approaches. On Ash Wednesday, Christians receive the sign of the cross on their foreheads. The mark is made with ashes from burned Palm branches saved from the previous year's celebration of Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday. Our service is co-sponsored by the Chaplain's office and The Catholic Student's Association. Father Anthony from St. Peter's and Burt Burleson will be presiding.
