Imposition of Ashes: Ash Wednesday

Stop by the Grace Chapel during the times listed for this Ash Wednesday tradition. The minister will lightly rub the sign of the cross with ashes onto the foreheads of worshipers. The use of ashes as a sign of mortality and repentance has a long history in Jewish and Christian worship. Historically, ashes signified purification and sorrow for sins. Read more about the tradition on the UMC website.
