Ash Wednesday Services 2021

Ash Wednesday
Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Ash Wednesday began the season of Lent, a time of self-reflection and Spiritual renewal during the forty days leading up to Easter.

We had three ways to begin our Lenten journey together on Wednesday, February 17, 2021.  This year we created a prayer card with both a prayer of confession and ashes attached.  These were distributed contact free.  They are perfect to hang on your refrigerator during the season of Lent as a daily reminder of our need for God’s grace.

1. Lunchtime Ashes-to-Go

We will need at least two people to help.
Please email Pastor Mary Catherine if you are willing to do so.
