Ash Wednesday -
A Reflection on mortality and repentance

Secondary Title

An Ash Wednesday service is a short, simple service of reflection and repentance that marks the beginning of Lent.


As the service leader marks you with the sign of the cross on your forehead, s/he reminds you: "From dust you came and to dust you shall return. Repent and believe in the gospel"


Wearing the cross on your forehead throughout the day is a public, visible sign of your repentant heart. It shows the world that you have turned away from your sins and your life has been forever marked by Christ.


If you'd like to participate in an Ash Wednesday service, there are several on campus on Wednesday March 6th:


St. Mark's Episcopal Ash Wednesday Services: noon and 7 pm


St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Ash Wednesday Services: 12:20 and 4 pm


Storrs Congregational Church Ash Wednesday Services: 12:15 and 7 pm

Sundays

Join us Sundays @ 6:15 PM

Our service creates space for you to connect to God with both your heart and your mind.

 

When you walk through the doors of the chapel, you’ll find a welcoming community, contemporary music, interactive teaching, and time for prayers and blessings. As we worship together, we believe that God will transform your stress into peace, your disappointments into hope, and your worries into prayers. 

 

Because we believe that life with God is the best life.

 

So join us on Sunday evenings as we encounter God together.
