Lent & Easter


Ash Wednesday Services

Wednesday, February 14, 2018 at 12:05 and 6:30 p.m.
This 40-day period of Lent begins within our faith community. Through text and music, each service focuses on the light of God's redeeming love in Jesus Christ. The use of ashes is as a sign of mortality and penance, and the imposition of ashes on our foreheads is a powerful nonverbal way of participating in the call to repentance and reconciliation.
