The service is open to everyone, and will include the burning of last year’s palms with Pastor Pat, as well as the imposition of ashes (the opportunity to receive ashes on your forehead if you choose to).

This service will include the imposition of ashes, candlelight, quiet time for prayer and contemplation, and the opportunity to walk the labyrinth. Our Chancel Choir will also sing at this service.
