Many Christians attend Ash Wednesday services the day after Fat Tuesday (Mardi Gras), and those interested in participating in a meaningful Ash Wednesday communion service are invited to the Laguna Presbyterian Church sanctuary at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9.
Ash Wednesday begins the Lenten season in the Christian church, a 40-day period recalling Christ’s fast in the desert, prior to His crucifixion, death, and resurrection on Easter Sunday. Lent is a season of penitence and renewal. The ashes placed on foreheads symbolize human mortality, sorrow, and repentance.
Laguna Presbyterian Church is located at the corner of Forest Avenue and Second Street. For further information, contact the church office at 494-7555.
