Ash Wednesday Services at St. John’s Cathedral

St. John’s Cathedral, 256 East Church Street, Jacksonville, Florida.
Each year, Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and is always 46 days before Easter Sunday. Lent is a 40-day season (not counting Sundays) marked by repentance, fasting, reflection, and ultimately celebration. The 40-day period represents Christ’s time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and where Satan tempted him. Lent asks believers to set aside a time each year for similar fasting, marking an intentional season of focus on Christ’s life, ministry, sacrifice, and resurrection.
We invite you to start your Lenten journey at the Cathedral by attending one of our Ash Wednesday services at 7 AM, 12 noon or
7 PM. The Cathedral Choir will sing at the 7:00 PM service.
