Ash Wednesday

  • Crimson Teas 415 Spadina Avenue Toronto, ON, M5T 2G6 Canada (map)

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a time of penitence, fasting, and prayer in preparation for Easter. Ashes are an ancient sign of penitence; from the middle ages it became the custom to begin Lent by being marked in ash with the sign of the cross, remembering that “you are dust, and to dust you shall return” (Genesis 3:19b).
