Ash Wednesday

February 17 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Ash Wednesday begins our Lenten season of spiritual contemplation and preparation.  There is no way to administer ashes while physically distancing so we invite you to participate in a modified Ash Wednesday ritual.  We will be tending a bonfire outside in the front courtyard (corner of 21st and College Way) of the church from 5-8pm.  You are invited to come to the fire, write down your intention for Lent on a notecard that will be provided, and toss it on the fire.  Instead of rubbing ashes on our forehead we will simply make our own.  Appropriately our theme for the season this year will be, “Tending the Fire: Spiritual Practices for Lent.”  We invite everyone to come and tend the fire for a moment on Ash Wednesday, Feb. 17th, anytime between 5-8pm.
