Most public events have some special ceremony to mark their beginning. For Lent this beginning is Ash Wednesday (March 9). Each church member is encouraged to make plans to be in church on that day. The Prayer Book refers to it as a day of “observance by special acts of discipline and self-denial” (p. 17)
At 12 P.M. and 7:30 P.M. we will gather to participate in the unique Ash Wednesday Liturgy, to receive the sacred ashes on our foreheads (if you are so accustomed), and to celebrate Holy Communion. Through confessing our sins and receiving assurance of God’s unconditional forgiveness and pardon through the words of Absolution, the barrier between us and Him will be removed. We can go home knowing that we are indeed forgiven and in fellowship with Him. Please make plans to join us for this holy observance.
All are invited! Please share this event with your friends and family!
