Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent, the 40 days before the victorious Easter.

Ash Wednesday reminds us of our mortality, that all of us will leave this world someday.

It is also a time for repentance. We grief over our sins (ashes are used in the Old Testament to symbolise grief and repentance) and recommit ourselves to follow Jesus Christ.
