Begin Lent on February 14 with Ash Wednesday Worship
In hopes of accommodating all our members and their varied schedules, we will offer four services on the first day of Lent, Wednesday, February 14 (yes, it’s Valentine’s Day!).
At 8:00 am and 6:30 pm at St. Michael Parish we will enter into the season of renewal with the imposition of ashes at a celebration of Mass.
At the Church of the Resurrection there will be Mass with the Distribution of Ashes at 12:10 pm … while at 5:00 pm there will be a Service of the Word with the Distribution of Ashes.
Daily devotionals, CRS Rice Bowls, and other background reading is available at the Lenten Table
At the church gathering areas you will find a buffet of options to encourage your keeping of Lent—“Little Black Books” for daily prayer (courtesy of Fr. Mark), short articles to clarify what the season is about, and Catholic Relief Service Rice Bowls to hold your savings from reducing your self-indulgences for the sake of hunger relief.
