Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent—the penitential season before Easter. St. John’s holds two Ash Wednesday services, at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. We also join in Ash Wednesday worship with our neighbors at St. James’s Episcopal Church (1018 Farmington Avenue, in West Hartford Center) for a noon service. In addition, you may stop into the church any time from 8 to 11:30 a.m. to receive the imposition of ashes from a priest.
