About 30 people from various peace and faith communities in D.C. held an Ash Wednesday Prayer Service of Repentance and Conversion outside the White House.

To commemorate Ash Wednesday about 30 people from the D.C. faith-based peace and justice community gathered at the White house to hold a liturgy of repentance. The witness was organized by the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker. The witness included several songs, a reading of our leaflet (see below), a scripture passage, and a reading by Archbishop Oscar Romero regarding the meaning of Lent. Prayers were offered to remember the victims of the Amariyah shelter in Iraq, on this the 22nd anniversary of this U.S. war crime; to end the U.S.
