Ashes on the Way
March 2 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am
On Ash Wednesday, millions of people around the world will participate in this ancient ritual and have their foreheads marked with ashes in the shape of a cross. If you’d like to receive ashes, we offer a few ways to do that at Winnetka Congregational Church.
Ashes on the Way is something we began offering six years ago, to meet people where they are, however busy their days are, wherever they are on their faith journey, and however they feel about church. It’s something many have found to be very meaningful personally and for their families.
Here’s how it works: From 6:00 until 10:00 A.M. on March 2, you just drive into the church parking lot, enter the roundabout in front, and stop curbside. One of our pastors will come to your car to offer the imposition of ashes and a blessing. If you have a particular joy or concern, please feel free to share that with the pastor. If you do not wish to receive ashes, you may simply ask for a blessing.
Or you can join us at 7:00 PM for a short Ash Wednesday worship service, where you can receive ashes.
