This Ash Wednesday service includes the imposition of ashes and a litany of penitence. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent. It occurs forty days before Easter (not including six Sundays, which are considered feast days), and recalls Jesus's forty days in the wilderness, itself mirroring the Israelites' forty years in the desert. Parking is available on a first-come-first-served basis in the Bryan Center garage at 125 Science Drive. ADA parking is available in the Bryan Center Surface Lot at the same address. The service will streamed live on the Duke Chapel YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/dukechapel .
