Join us for Divine Service for Ash Wednesday on February 17 at 7pm. The imposition of ashes begins at 6:45 in the Narthex.
Christians mark the beginning of Lent with the Ash Wednesday Divine Service. Lent is a 40-day season of focus on Christ’s Passion, penitential reflection, and catechesis, with the disciplines of increased prayer, increased fasting, and increased almsgiving.
The lessons are Joel 2.12-19; 2 Peter 1.2-11; and St. Matthew 6.1-6, 16-21.
Also mark your calendars to join us for midweek Lent Vespers on Wednesdays at 7pm during Lent. This year’s theme is “Into His Death and Resurrection: On Holy Baptism.”
- February 24: What is baptism?
- March 3: What benefits does baptism give?
- March 10: How can water do such great things?
- March 17: What does such baptizing with water indicate?
- March 24: Infant Baptism
Use the Sunday bulletin insert as a reminder of Vespers on Wednesdays for your refrigerator or bulletin board; and share one with a family member, friend, or neighbor to invite them to attend.
