PERTH AMBOY – Rev. Dr. Lee Spitzer, executive minister of American Baptist Churches of New Jersey, will be the guest speaker at Cathedral International’s 7 p.m. Ash Wednesday service on Feb. 13.
Cathedral International church participates in the Christian tradition of observing Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. In two services, at noon and 7 p.m., ashes will be distributed in the marking of the forehead, a sign of repentance and humility. Lent is a period of 40 days that precedes Easter.

He was previously pastor of First Baptist Church, Lincoln, Neb., the Seaview Baptist Church in Linwood, and the First Baptist Church in East Providence, R.I. before assuming his current position.
