Lent Begins Next Week

Next week begins the season of Lent in the Christian year with the holy day of Ash Wednesday. It is a day of mourning over our sins, with the public imposition of ashes on our foreheads being a sign of our repentance. Though opinion varies, it seems this practice dates from at least the 8th century. Many people fast this day. In some churches the ashes created from burning the palms of the previous year's Palm Sunday.

St. Andrew's Anglican Church in Syracuse, NY is an AMIA Church and will have Ash Wednesday services. Here's their Lenten schedule. My church does not observe the church year, so I'm not sure of where I will go for Ash Wednesday, but this looks like a good option. Anyone want to go with me?
