Rev. Matt McCaffrey will offer the ancient “Imposition of Ashes” (for repentance) and “Anointing with Oil” for healing. Participants may choose to receive either or both of these services, or simply to join in this time of meditation and prayer. Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent. It is a 40-day period of study and disciplined meditation leading to the festival of Easter Sunday.
Allyn Donath will offer meditative music starting at 11:45 a.m., and the service will begin promptly at 12 noon. Stay for a bowl of soup and fellowship afterwards.
This Ash Wednesday service takes place in the comfortable surroundings of the church parlor. All are invited to come for this important traditional service.
