Ash Wednesday

We are honored to join with Bethel Lutheran and Mount Zion Lutheran churches for Ash Wednesday services on Wednesday, February 14. This year we will offer two services at NJLC: one at 12:00 p.m. and again at 7:30 p.m., both with the imposition of ashes.


Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, and an opportunity to take part in the imposition of ashes, in which blessed ashes from last year's Palm Sunday palms are placed in a cross on the forehead. It serves as a powerful reminder of what Lent means to Christians, Christ's sacrifice for us, and marks a shift in our focus as we look toward Good Friday and Easter Sunday.
