Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday, February 17th, is the first day in the season of Lent - a 40-day season of reflection, repentance, and renewal that prepares us for a deeper and joyful experience in Jesus' resurrection on Easter. Two full Ash Wednesday services were held - a noon (12 pm) service via Zoom and an in-person, outdoor service at 7 pm in the lower parking lot.

Lenten Activities
