The gospel reading for Ash Wednesday each year includes Jesus’ teaching on almsgiving, prayer, and fasting – practices that are hallmarks of the season of Lent. We will be holding a brief, solemn service on Zoom at 8:30 AM. If you received a Lenten bag, you will find in it the liturgy for the service and a piece of charcoal that you may use to mark your forehead with the sign of the cross. Alternatively, you may use a dab of olive oil to make the sign of the cross.
Grace and peace,
