Ash Wednesday at St. George’s
Wednesday, March 1 at 12:00 and 7:00 p.m.
“Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Church people in our tradition will recognize these words in our worship services on March 1st. They remind us of our humanity and of God’s promise in Jesus Christ. When imposed on the forehead of the person coming forward to receive the ashes, they take the form of a cross. It is a solemn moment to remind us of our mortality and penitence and to provide a fitting ritual to begin Lent, a season of bright sadness—bright because of the fruits of Jesus’ death and resurrection and sad because of the world’s sin and evil.
