Ash Wednesday Invitation

Ash Wednesday is the first day of the church season of Lent, which precedes Easter. This year, Ash Wednesday is on February 10. LAUMC invites you to a “come as you are” service in the evening with Holy Communion and the imposition of ashes. The Sanctuary will be open and pastors available from 5:00pm to 8:00pm. All are welcome.

For a meditation on what Ash Wednesday means, read Smudges on the Soul.


  1. This is a real eye opener for me! I happen to be Catholic, but so enjoy your Sunday live stream. When did Methodists begin using Ashes as part of their service??
