Ash Wednesday

March 08 2019
Ash Wednesday is a Christian holy day of prayer, fasting and repentance. It is preceded by Shrove Tuesday and falls on the first day of Lent, the six weeks of penitence before Easter. Ash Wednesday is observed by many Christians, including Anglicans, Lutherans, Old Catholics, Methodists, Presbyterians, Roman Catholics, and some Baptists. Thank you to Reverend Jeff from St. Anne's Episcopal Church in Fremont, California for taking the time to come to Fremont Hills to distribute ashes to our residents. It was really very nice that he also went to visit residents in their apartments who were not able to join us in the Activity Room for this event.
