The First Day of Lent: More Than Just Ashes
Trinity Church Wall Street scheduled seven services on Ash Wednesday, the first day of the penitential season of Lent: at 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11am at the Chapel of All Saints, and at 12:05 and 5:30pm at St. Paul’s Chapel. The Rev. Bruce Jenneker helps us understand this ancient and annual observance whose meaning goes well beyond its most obvious feature.
The Rt. Rev. Andrew Dietsche, Bishop of the Diocese of New York, preached on Ash Wednesday at 12:05pm. Watch his sermon.
The Rev. Winnie Varghese of Trinity Church Wall Street preached at 5:30pm. Watch her sermon.
