This next Wednesday, March 1, 2017 marks the beginning of Lent. We will be celebrating Ash Wednesday at 7:00 am with a said Eucharist and the imposition of ashes. As is our parish custom, we will celebrate a Wednesday morning said Eucharist throughout the lenten season at 7:00 am. We expect the service to conclude around 7:30 am. Please do join us. Our parish along with several of our neighbors will be observing an ecumenical evening service on Wednesdays at various parishes throughout our area. The schedule for the United Lenten observance can be found here.
The United Lenten Devotions Wednesday night series begins March 8th. This year, we will be using the theme, “Father, forgive them” from Jesus’s last words on the cross as found in the Gospel according to Luke. We will be using the texts to provide opportunity to reflect on the places that we need to be reconciled to God and to each other and the ways that we are called to work for reconciliation in the world around us. Please join us!
