GLITTER IS LIKE LOVE. IT’S IRRESISTIBLE AND IRREPRESSIBLE.

Ashes are a statement that death and suffering are real.

Glitter is a sign of our hope, which does not despair.
It signals our promise to repent, to show up, to witness, to work.

Glitter never gives up – and neither do we.

Glitter+Ash blends symbols of mortality and hope, of penance and celebration. Ash Wednesday is the beginning of Lent, a season of repentance. During Lent, Christians look inward and take account in order to move forward with greater health.

Glitter+Ash exquisitely captures the relationship between death and new life. We do not live in fear of ash - of death - we place it on our foreheads for the world to see. We know that fear will rise, cramping our hearts. We also know that God specifically calls us not to project that fear onto the Other, the alien, the stranger in our midst. God insists that we look for the spark of life, of hope, in ourselves and one another. This Ash Wednesday, we will make that spark easier to see. We will stand witness to the gritty, glittery, scandalous hope that exists in the very marrow of our tradition.
(Inspired by Parity NYC)

You are Beloved. Happy Valentine’s Day. Ash Wednesday Blessings.

The disposition of glitter ashes will be available on Wednesday, Feb 14, on the Orange Plaza Circle near the fountain during the following times:
7:00-8:00 AM
11:30 AM - 12:30 PM
5:00-6:00 PM

Traditional ashes will also be available.
