Ash Wednesday begins the Christian season of Lent. The season of Lent is a time of reflection, prayer, and repentance in preparation for celebrating Easter. On Ash Wednesday, ashes are marked on the foreheads of all those who wish to participate in this season. The use of ashes as a sign of mortality and repentance has a long history in Jewish and Christian worship.

This special service will last about 30 minutes and be led by the Department of Pastoral Care. Chaplains will be available to come up to individual units throughout the hospital to deliver ashes to any patients, families, or staff members who cannot attend this chapel service in person. To request this, please call the pastoral care main office at 984-974-4021.
