Easter

Lent and Easter at Trinity

This Lent, let’s do more than believe. Let’s follow.

Ash Wednesday

Wednesday, March 2

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline.

During Ash Wednesday services, pastors will lightly rub the sign of the cross with ashes onto your forehead. The use of ashes is a sign of mortality and repentance.
