ST. GEORGE — Grace Episcopal Church located at 1072 E. 900 South in St George will hold two Ash Wednesday Services; one at 10:30 a.m. and one at 5:30 p.m.
Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten Season, falls on March 1 this year. This day gets its name from the burning of palm branches used at last year’s Palm Sunday service. The ashes are placed on the forehead of penitents as a sign of our mortality and penitence. The ashes remind me that my faith is sometimes like Palm Sunday’s moist palm branches. They quickly became dry and brittle.
Note: There will be no Noon Mass that day in the chapel.
