Ash Wednesday begins our 40-day journey of faith with a remembrance of our Baptism, our relationship to God through Christ. The evening activities will include children’s crafts, a Mardi Gras celebration of food and festivities, preparations for the Lenten season with the burning of the palms and a service calling us to take up our time of reflection and renewal with the imposition of ashes. You’re invited to bring a favorite dessert to our final feast before the fast of Lent—maybe even one you’re giving up for Lent. A sign-up sheet is in the narthex or E-Mail Joseph at firstname.lastname@example.org and just list your name and what dessert you plan to bring! Thank you!
