Ash Wednesday - Ashes to Go

Wednesday, February 14 from 11:30am-1:30pm

Allegheny Avenue in front of Calvary UMC

We are trying a modern take on an ancient Christian tradition! Calvary pastors will be outside our church during the lunch hour to offer the imposition of ashes to pedestrians and drivers. All are free to join as we encourage our neighborhood to step into God's Season of Lent!

Traditional Ash Wednesday Service

Wednesday, February 14 at 7:00pm

Calvary UMC Chapel

Please join us for a solemn service and the imposition of ashes for 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 and a time for repairing relationships and healing. For many, Lent is recognized 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.
