Ash Wednesday service at noon on Feb 14 in the Chapel (details below). All are welcome!
This year, with Easter falling on April 1, means that Ash Wednesday will be Feb. 14, Valentine’s Day. Now that has a sad irony for those whose tradition encourages them to give up something they enjoy during Lent. One of the favorites to give up is chocolate, but to start on Valentine’s Day? That is too bad. Really.
In observation of Lent this year, there will be informal services in the Chapel every Wednesday at noon starting Ash Wednesday and continuing until March 21, the week before Holy Week. Ashes will be available on Ash Wednesday, but the remainder of services will consist principally of readings and prayers. Anyone is welcome to attend and bring a lunch for casual conversation afterward.
