Ash Wednesday – Imposition of Ashes – 10th Feb 11am St. Matthew

posted in: Blog | 0

Dear friends in Christ,

I invite you to receive these ashes

as a sign of the spirit of penitence with which we shall keep this season of Lent.

God our Father,

you create us from the dust of the earth:

grant that these ashes may be for us

a sign of our penitence

and a symbol of our mortality;

for it is by your grace alone

that we receive eternal life

in Jesus Christ our Saviour.
