Ash Wednesday, March 1, marks the beginning of Lent. Collegiate/Wesley will offer three very different opportunities to receive the traditional ashes.
The first, “Ashes to Go” is designed for those who’d like to receive the ashen mark of the cross before they head off to work or classes. “Ashes to Go” does not involve any formal worship, however, prayer and contemplation materials will be available which participants may use then and there or take with them.
Rev. Jim Shirbroun will offer “Ashes to Go” from 6:30 – 8 a.m. in Nichols Chapel (found in the northwest corner of the main floor) and then move to the west landing of ISU’s Memorial Union from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
A more traditional Ash Wednesday worship experience, with imposition of ashes and holy communion, will be held in the main sanctuary of Collegiate/Wesley at 8 p.m.
