Ash Wednesday, February 18, Holy Communion with Imposition of Ashes: 11:00 AM & 7:00PM
The first day of Lent is marked with a special liturgy. In the Old Testament, ashes were a sign of penitence (feeling regret for one’s sins) and mourning. The words, “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return” are said by the priest and remind us that that we live only by the grace of God. On this day fasting is also suggested.
This evening also begins a special book study: “Forgive and Get Your Life Back”. This program is limited to 12 participants. If you have sleepless nights because of another’s painful behaviour or a betrayal, I encourage you to sign up for this healing and freeing experience of learning to deeply forgive and “get your life back.” Sign up in the office.
