1-Handout for DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Ritual, 2-page PDF file

This simple service is perfect for at home or remote site observances of Ash Wednesday — all that is needed is this handout and some palm ash. It may be taken to home-bound members, passed out in churches which do not offer formal services on Ash Wednesday, freely shared, or used in a congregation for a little contemplative service.

Content includes information about preparation and a script for use during the ritual, including music suggestion and two scripture readings.
