Ash Wednesday 2018

Almighty God, you have created us out of the dust of the earth: Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our
mortality and penitence, that we may remember that it is only by your gracious gift that we are given everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Savior. Amen                                                             (Book of Common Prayer, p. 265)
Ash Wednesday Ashes on The Way at the Northwest Regional Library.
Wednesday, March 14, 2018
10:30am-12:00pm Public Imposition of Ashes
12:00pm Ash Wednesday Liturgy

Outside the Northwest Regional Public Library
16089 N Bullard Ave, Surprise, AZ 85374

All are invited to join us and receive ashes
as you travel through your daily routine.

Through the tradition of imposing ashes on our foreheads on this first day of the Season of Lent, we are invited to recall our own mortality and remember the gift of eternal life given to us though Jesus Christ. We are invited to walk with Christ through his own 40-day temptation in the wilderness, and look with mindfulness toward the things that tempt us, as we begin this season of remembrance and penitence.
