Ash Wednesday

The 40-day season of Lent  is a time of reflection and contemplation for Christians as we regard the need for grace in our lives in order to live a transformed life that reflects God’s love. We are called to renew our commitments and our faith as we continually acknowledge our need of God’s transforming presence with us. We invite you to join us in the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God's holy Word.

We begin with Ash Wednesday, where we will participate in a traditional service of liturgy and hymns culminating in the imposition of ashes as a reminder that "from dust we come, and to dust we shall return."
