Ash Wednesday Service I February 22nd, 5:30pm – 6:30pm
Come to the church parking lot accessed by Huntington St. for a meditative time of reflection and renewal. We will have the imposition of ashes amidst a service of brief liturgy, holding a time of awareness that God, whose redeeming power creates, sustains, and redeems all of life, is with us in our repentance. Then, we will move inside for a simple meal of soup and time of spiritual practice.
