From the venue:Join us for Ash Wednesday services at noon or 7 p.m. on February 13 in the NAPC Sanctuary.Ash Wednesday derives its name from the practice of placing ashes on the foreheads of adherents as a sign of mourning and repentance to God. The ashes used are typically gathered after the palms from the previous yearâ€™s Palm Sunday are burned. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Lenten season and the beginning of this 40-day liturgical period of prayer and fasting.
