The path from ashes to Alleluia is one that we walk together, in community. We make our way from the solemnity of Lent to the drama of Holy Week to the glory of Easter Sunday.

This Lent and Easter, we won’t be able to gather together as we normally would. But we can still make the journey together, wherever we are. Our holy season will look a little different this year, but the destination is the same.

We look forward to traveling with you. God bless you on your way.

Holy Eucharist with Imposition of Ashes

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent: a time of fasting, prayer, self-examination, and preparation for the Easter Feast. Join us live for the traditional Ash Wednesday service, including the imposition of ashes, an ancient sign of repentance, which serves as a reminder of our mortality.
