Estill Springs Church Calendar

 
Ash Wednesday
Ash Wednesday is one of the most popular and important holy days in the liturgical calendar.  
Ash Wednesday opens Lent, a season of fasting and prayer. 
Ash Wednesday takes place 46 days before Easter Sunday, and is chiefly observed by Catholics, Orthodox, Lutherans, Anglicans and Methodist along with other Christian groups.  
Ash Wednesday comes from the ancient Jewish tradition of penance and fasting. The practice includes the wearing of ashes on the head. The ashes symbolize the dust from which God made us. As the priest applies the ashes to a person’s forehead, he speaks the words: “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Alternatively, the priest may speak the words, “Repent and believe in the Gospel.”  Ashes also symbolize grief, in this case, grief that we have sinned and caused division from God. Writings from the Second-century Church refer to the wearing of ashes as a sign of penance.
We welcome all of you to join us in this most special service.
