Ash Wednesday Services – Wednesday, March 1 at 6:30 a.m., noon and 7:30 p.m.
The Ash Wednesday liturgy is the doorway to Lent. The liturgy is filled with sober images, focuses on our mortality and sin, and the action of having ashes “imposed” on our foreheads, before we celebrate the Eucharist, reminding us of God’s forgiveness and love, together.

Prayer and Action – Lenten Quiet Day
“And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray.” – Matthew 14:23
Join us Saturday, March 11 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. to study prayer and action. Often when we seek closer relationship with God we turn to prayer. Indeed, there are many books leading us nearer God’s presence through prayer. What we sometimes forget, is that our prayer is meant to drive our action in the world, and our action in the world is meant to lead our prayers. It is when we combine both, prayer and action, that we pattern our lives on following Christ’s example in the world. After Jesus taught, healed and worked, he always went to pray.
