Ash Wednesday

Pope Francis has called for a day of prayer for peace (and for those whose mental and physical health allows it, a day of fasting) on Ash Wednesday, and the Church of England, together with many other major denominations in the UK and around the world, is supporting this call.

This is an opportunity to focus our attention during Lent on the needs of the world, and our own responses to the world's brokenness. Prayer and fasting are just part of our response to the suffering of humanity and of all creation; we are also called to be peace-makers and active agents of God's kingdom in the world, through our words and our actions.
