Ash Wednesday services mark the beginning of the Lenten season for many Christian denominations.
During this time, followers will observe a period of fasting and repentance while also practicing self-denial and spiritual discipline. In observance of this time of preparation before the celebration of Easter, the Church of the Holy Trinity will once again offer its Lenten Fine Arts series, which will include a meal and musical programs.
The series will kick off Friday with a wine and cheese reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in McInnis Parish Hall, Holy Trinity music director Dorothy Brasfield said.
