Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday, a sacred occasion of prayer and fasting, holds significance in numerous Western Christian denominations. Preceded by Shrove Tuesday, it signifies the commencement of Lent, a period of six weeks dedicated to penitence leading up to Easter.

This solemn day is acknowledged by Catholics, Lutherans, Moravians, Anglicans, Methodists, Nazarenes, and also by certain churches within the Reformed tradition. This includes specific Congregationalist, Continental Reformed, and Presbyterian churches.
