Dementia-friendly Ash Wednesday service

A few senior care communities asked me if I’d be providing a video for an Ash Wednesday service — so here it is! (Ash Wednesday, which begins the season of Lent, is on February 17 this year.)

As always, this 41-minute service is designed for older adults with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. It includes scripture readings, hymns, an interactive homily, and time for distributing the ashes.

If you’ll be using this video, please read the background and instructions in the video description before you start.
