Imposition of Ashes: Drive-Thru
Wednesday, February 17, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 am MST
Ash Wednesday, February 17:
In-person Imposition of Ashes and Livestreamed Worship
On Ash Wednesday, February 17, we begin our 40-day journey toward Easter with reflection and repentance. Marking our foreheads with ashes, we acknowledge that we are human and will one day return to the earth. At the same time, we know that the dusty cross on our forehead is a reminder of the life-giving cross traced on us at baptism. We trust that we have been reconciled to God through the love of Christ.
We will not be gathering for in-person worship that day. But all are invited to receive a cross of ashes from the pastors outdoors at Augustana’s west sanctuary entrance (Alameda Avenue and Elm Street) during three time periods:
- Drive-through Imposition of ashes, 7–8 a.m.
- Walk-up Imposition of ashes, noon–1 p.m.
- Walk-up Imposition of ashes, 5–6 p.m.
Masks are required, and social distancing will be observed.
