Ash Wednesday: Bitter & Sweet
March 2 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm EST
Join us Wednesday, March 2 at 7:00pm for our Ash Wednesday: Bitter & Sweet service. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten season, traditionally seen as 40 days of preparation before Easter. We read in the Gospels that Jesus turned his face towards Jerusalem, and he prepared himself and his followers for his death on the cross. In the same way during this Lenten season, we turn our own hearts towards the Cross so that we can fully embrace the power of Jesus’ resurrection on Easter.
This year’s service will be held in-person and streamed online on our livestreaming platforms. In addition, our Fairfax Kids team is preparing a special Ash Wednesday experience for kids aged 2 to grade four. Parents, please register your children before attending here.
