Ash Wednesday Services in South County

Ash Wednesday is March 5. We rounded up church services in the area and have listed them below by denomination. Please note that many Christian churches do not hold special services on Ash Wednesday.

Here’s some information about Ash Wednesday from About.com:

In Western Christianity, Ash Wednesday marks the first day, or the start of the season Lent, which begins 40 days prior to Easter.

Lent is a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline. During some Ash Wednesday services, the minister will lightly rub the sign of the cross with ashes onto the foreheads of worshipers.
