All are welcome to join us at Liverpool Cathedral for our Ash Wednesday Eucharist service.
At the 12.05 Ash Wednesday, marking the beginning of Lent, there will be an opportunity for all who attend to receive the sign of the Cross in Ash, along with Holy Communion.
Ash Wednesday is an ancient custom to make a simple cross on the forehead out of Ash at the beginning of Lent, as a reminder of our sorrow for our sins, and the brokenness of the world, and as a sign of hope in the mystery of the cross, God’s love entering into our fragile humanity and redeeming us.
