Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent – a time of reflection, of examining the pain, the aching, the dust, and ashes within our own lives and seeing where God would have us go in the next 40 days of fasting from impatience, bitterness, and apathy and instead learning to feast on calmness, enthusiasm, forgiveness, and peace.
For those interested in attending an Ash Wednesday service there are services being held at many local Anglican churches at different times of the day. We look forward to welcoming you.
