Ash Wednesday is the traditional beginning of Lent, the six week season which precedes Easter. For generations now, Christians have sought to deepen their connection to Christ’s death and resurrection by journeying through a season of preparation. We give something up–we create space and lack–in order to participate fully in the moment of resurrection.
We believe this is a wise and enriching practice and we want to help you get the most out of it.
We invite you to a 45 minute event marking the beginning of the Lenten journey to Easter. Expect a moment of worship and prayer, a brief teaching on the meaning of this season and an opportunity to be marked with ashes as a symbol of mortality, but also our hope in Christ’s Easter triumph.
Wednesday, February 14, 7PM at the Kensington Parish. This is a family event and so everyone is welcome. Childcare available.
