Ash Wednesday 2023

Services in the Sanctuary Feb. 22 at noon and 6:30pm, including the imposition of ashes.

Ash Wednesday, which falls on February 22nd this year, is the traditional beginning of the ancient Christian season of Lent, the six-week period leading to Easter. Ash Wednesday emphasizes Christian repentance, the setting aside of the old self, and the placing on of the new behaviors in Christ. As a part of those new behaviors Christians have placed a special emphasis on renewing practices of prayer, bible study, and Christian living. It is a period of preparation. Like many churches, PCPC will hold Ash Wednesday services.

There WILL be Wednesday Night Dinner this evening, like usual, served from 5:15-6:15pm.

Ash Wednesday Interactive Prayer Garden
4:45-6:15 p.m.

PCPC’s Memorial Garden and Courtyard will be an interactive, self-guided worship and prayer experience to start our Lenten journey on Ash Wednesday. There will be something for people of all ages and the experience is designed to be flexible — so come for 5 minutes or stay for 45 minutes. The imposition of ashes will be available.
