Ash Wednesday Service

  • Mt. Sinai Holy Church 301 S. Swain Street Raleigh, NC 27601

Lent begins at the Ash Wednesday service (this Wednesday at 6pm), where we are reminded of our mortality and our need for a savior.  At this service we will receive the mark of the cross, made in ash*, on our forehead.  The ashes remind us that we were created from the dust and we will return to the dust (Genesis 3:19).  The cross reminds us of our hope for life beyond death.  Ash Wednesday is a powerful service and we encourage you all to attend.
