Ashes to Go 2017

Ash Wednesday

On this day, Christians are invited into a 40 day season of

penitence and fasting,

a time of study and reflection,

a time of leaving things behind and taking on new challenges…

Have you experienced a faith practice?   Have you missed a tradition you were raised with?

Have you wondered if you can live and love your life and the city and be a part of a faith community too?

Let this invitation to the season of Lent,

to growing in knowledge of the Church,

to being a seeker and a follower of Christ,

Let it be your entry point into understanding

ancient tradition in contemporary ways.
