Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent.  On this day, Christians focus on their complete sinfulness and the necessity of Christ's suffering and death to insure their salvation.  Ashes are referred to many times in the Old Testament as signs of sorrow, mourning, humility, and repentance, and on Ash Wednesday they are used to remind people of their mortality --  that "you are dust, and to dust you shall return" (Genesis 3:19).  Many churches use ashes during Ash Wednesday worship in a ritual called the Imposition of Ashes.  In this custom, ashes are mixed with a small amount of oil and applied to the forehead of each worshipper.

The Sunday of the Passion or Palm Sunday begins the last week of Lent, known as Holy Week.  During this holiest time of the church year, the worship services relive the final week of our Lord's human life.  Holy Week includes Maundy Thursday, when Christians observe Christ's "Last Supper" -- the institution of the Sacrament of Holy Communion -- and the mandate to serve one another in love.  Good Friday commemorates the imprisonment, trial and death by crucifixion of Jesus.
