EXPLORING THE TRUE MEANING OF LENT AND EASTER This year we repeat our successful Ashes to Go and Palms to Go initiative, a new way of bringing these ancient Lenten traditions to a wider public. Ashes to Go started in the United States as a way of taking part of the Ash Wednesday service out into the community as a public statement, an opportunity for individuals to meet for a short time with God and think about what Lent is all about. The local vicar or priest, robed, would sit in a very public place and offer people an opportunity to say prayers and be anointed with ashes. It is not intended to replace the Ash Wednesday service, but is a way of offering the ritual to those that either would never come to or cannot make the church service. This year clergy will be available from 11am until 4pm on Wednesday 1st March in the main space of the Cathedral. Canon for Discipleship Paul Rattigan explained: “Each year we see about 50 people use this opportunity to take time out with God. Typically about half make the journey especially and the rest are visitors, pleasantly surprised to find us sitting there. We have many significant conversations and even some tears as people who hadn’t really engaged with God for a while realised they were precious in his 6

sight. All the clergy find it very encouraging and a privilege to be able to offer this.” Palms to Go extends the concept into Holy Week, offering palms from the Palm Sunday service for an hour each day in Holy Week. This year clergy will be available 1pm to 2pm from Monday 10th April till Thursday 13th April. Canon Paul added: “Each year more than 100 people take the opportunity and it is great to remind people of the true message of Easter in such a special week. Our prayer is that this year more people encounter God in this simple, creative way.” »» For further information check our website: www. liverpoolcathedral.org.uk
