Ash Wednesday is February 10, 2016

Let us receive the announcement of Lent with joy!
For if our forefather Adam had kept the fast,
We would not have been deprived of paradise.
O Lord, who took flesh from the Virgin
in the fullness of time,
Call me back and restore me to Eden!

– Byzantine Vespers

We begin our celebration of Lent with the imposition of ashes on

  • Wednesday at 9:00am
  • Wednesday at 7:00pm

You thumbed grit
into my furrowed brow,
marking me
with the sign of mortality,
the dust of last year’s palms.

The cross you traced
seared, smudged skin,
and I recalled other ashes
etched
into my heart
by those who love too little
or not at all.

– Elizabeth-Anne Vanek in Extraordinary Time

(Ash Wednesday is a day of fast and abstinence)

Mardi Gras

Our celebration of this Carnival season ends with the celebration of Mardi Gras!

Plan to join us as we celebrate Fat Tuesday this year in style on February 9 at 6:30pm.

It’s a pot-luck festivity, so it’s time to start thinking about what you’d like to bring. Make your most decadent and lusty dishes, because this festival has to carry us through the entire austere season of Lent!

Sign up sheets for the pot-luck dinner will be at the entrances of the Church.

Included with the pot-luck dinner will be the selection of prayer partners for Lent.

Plan on attending and remember to take this opportunity to show off your crazy hats and beads!
