Ash Wednesday - the ancient church practice of placing ashes, made from palm branches, on the foreheads of worshipers to the accompaniment of the words "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return" (Genesis 3:19), marks the beginning of the 40 days of the Lenten season - fasting, reflection, prayer, and penitence in preparation of Holy Week, where we remember Christ’s crucifixion on Good Friday and the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Sunday.  

You’re invited to join us on Wednesday, Feb. 17 (and every Wednesday following) as we begin this Lenten journey with Ash Wednesday worship.

We will have a short Imposition of ashes with Holy Communion service at 10 a.m. and a worship service at 6:30 p.m. at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, 4095 Highway 31W, in White House – two miles north of White House on the corner of Horseshoe Road.

Randy Sakach is the pastor of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church.
