Ash Wednesday services announced
February 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
All Saints Anglican Church will conduct Ash Wednesday services Feb. 14 at noon and 7 p.m. at 149 Ebenezer Road, just south of Ga. Hwy 54, east of Peachtree City.
Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent — the 40 weekdays before Easter. As Jesus fasted 40 days in the wilderness before embarking on his ministry, so Christians have long undertaken a 40-day preparation for the Easter celebration.
Ash Wednesday gains its name from the ashes Christians receive on their foreheads as a sign of penitence. In the Anglican tradition, Ash Wednesday is also set aside as a fast day in which Anglicans are urged to make certain sacrifices and perform extra acts of devotion.
