Tonight Messiah’s community will gather for the Ash Wednesday service with Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion. It’s Feb. 10, at 6:30 P.M. You are invited. The Ash Wednesday service, though solemn, helps us enter as a church family in to the spirit of Lent.
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40 days before Easter (not counting Sundays). By tradition it is a time in the life of the church for reflection on our lives, repentance for our sins, and renewal in our faith and life.
