12:00 pm Ash Wednesday Eucharist

February 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

We welcome you in Jesus’ name on this most solemn of day, Ash Wednesday, for the beginning of Lent. We start by making a soul-searching confession of sins, being marked with ashes, and hearing: “Remember, O man or O woman, you are dust and to dust you shall return.” The baptized receive the true Body and most precious Blood of Christ.

Today, the prophet Joel reminds us to return to the Lord with fasting. What is it that is most godlike in your life? Which occupies the center that belongs alone to the one God (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit)? Fasting of any kind creates space for God? How will you fast these forty days of Lent?
