7AM AND 6PM in the Sanctuary

                    “Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40 days that precede Easter. The 40 days excludes Sunday's because they are reminders of the resurrection. In the Christian scriptures the number 40 relates to the period spent in the Ark by Noah, the period spent by Israel seeking the promised land after the Exodus, and the time Jesus spent in the wilderness prior to beginning his ministry. For us the season of Lent is an invitation of renewal (Lent means spring), 40 days to prepare ourselves to take in the Good News of Easter through deeper disciplines of prayer, fasting, and doing good. Ashes are the traditional sign of sorrow and repentance and are also the signs of mortality.”
