Candlelight Ash Wednesday Service
(Posted March 4, 2019)
Ash Wednesday will be observed on March 6 at 7 p.m. at the First Congregational Church of Danbury’s Annie Orr Hall, which is located in the annex behind the sanctuary.
Pastor Pat Kriss will lead this candlelight worship service, and Rev. Stephen Tickner – Pastor of the Central Christian Church -- will co-officiate. Reverends Pat and Stephen will offer ashes and blessings. Guitarist Doug Hartline and Music Director Jim Moriarty will provide music.
The service will be based on the Taize style, which is characterized by repetitive singing of simple harmonized tunes, interspersed with readings, prayers, and periods of silence.
