Ash Wednesday (6 March) is a uniquely special day in the church calendar. It is when Lent begins, and we are invited to look at ourselves with some courage and take stock. One tradition is to be marked on the forehead with ash: this signifies our mortality and fragility. It’s not at all morbid or self-negating. It’s more about a sense of being grounded, of re-connecting with the things that most matter in life.
The Chapel is closed during the day but all are welcome to join us for the Holy Eucharist at 5.30pm which is sung by the Choir.
