Next Wednesday (10th Feb) is Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent. Foundation Worship at Queen's at 5pm will be an Ash Wednesday service of Holy Communion, and will include the option to be marked with ash ('ashing').
Students studying at Shallowford House will also have an Ash Wednesday Holy Communion service with optional ashing - please note that this will start at 6pm - earlier than the normal Shallowford service.
Not sure about ‘ashing’? – what it is, what it means, why some Christians do it? See the Guide to Ashing on Moodle, in the Chapel Info section.
