Strawberry Plains Jacksboro Ash Wednesday Services

Strawberry Plains Ash Wednesday services are eluding me. I'll post on those as soon as I find out about them.

Did you read about the Ash Wednesday service in Jacksboro? Its on the Associated Content box to the right of this box.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent. Services on this night include the imposition of ashes on one's forehead. This is a reminder of the sacrifice that Christ made. Palm branches from the Palm Sunday of the previous year are dried and then burned to create the ashes.

Not every Christian denomination participates in the Ash Wednesday observation. Those who do are almost always moved.
