Ash Wednesday in the Christian Church is the start of the Season of Lent. Ash Wednesday is one of the more important observances, because it is the one day of the year when Christians think about their own death. While the Catholic tradition has practiced Ash Wednesday and Lent for many years, it has only recently started to be observed by many Protestant traditions.
Epworth Villa’s Ash Wednesday service was held in the style of Prayer Stations. This means, attendees came and went as their time allowed. After walking into the Brill Chapel, Residents and Employees were greeted by stations set around the room. Guests were welcome to visit each station and move between them as they wished. The Prayer Stations were available in the Brill Chapel from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm. Chaplains were on hand for the Imposition of Ashes, as well as to answer questions and requests for prayer. Thanks to all who made time to visit the Brill Chapel on Ash Wednesday.
