Ash Wednesday begins the season of Lent, a time when many Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation, and spiritual discipline. Ashes on the forehead demonstrates an awareness of mortality and an intent to repent.

In observance of Ash Wednesday, Estes Park United Methodist Church will have drive-through ashes available on Wednesday, February 14, from noon to 1 p.m. at the church.

Join Pastor Ann Lantz in the driveway of Estes Park United Methodist Church at 1509 Fish Hatchery Road for this important day in our faith journey.
