Ash Wednesday 2019

06 March 2019

7:00 am, 12:00 noon, and 7:00 pm


 "I invite you, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent"

      With these words Ash Wednesday begins the forty-day season of Lent.  It is marked by special prayers, fasting, acts of devotion, and special liturgies.  We will offer three liturgies on Ash Wednesday. 

  •   7:00 am - Imposition of Ashes
  • 12:00 n    - Low Mass & Imposition of Ashes
  •   7:00 pm - Solemn Mass & Imposition of Ashes (with St Columba Choir) 
      At 7:00 am there will be the Ash Wednesday Liturgy & Imposition of Ashes (but no Eucharist).  This is a short liturgy for those who are on their way to work or school and will end by 7:30 am.  For those who desire it, confessions will be heard following this liturgy.

     At Noon there will be a quiet, said Mass with a homily and imposition of ashes. This liturgy lasts about 45 minutes.  For those who desire it, confessions will be heard following this liturgy.

     Then at 7:00pm, a full sung Mass will be offered.  This will include the liturgy of Ash Wednesday, imposition of ashes, and full choir. 

     Ash Wednesday is one of the most important days of our Church year.  Please make plans to attend one of our three liturgies so that you can prepare in heart and mindfor the Lenten journey.  This spiritual journey prepares us to see the new light of the Resurrection come Easter morning.    

     Confessions will be heard in the Chapel on Shrove Tuesday (3/5) from 12-1 pm, and on Ash Wednesday (3/6) from 11-11:45am and from 6-6:45pm, or by appointment (contact Father Tripp).


Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

Tuesday, 5 March 2019
6:30 - 8:00 pm

     Join us on Shrove Tuesday for our annual pre-Lenten pancake supper!  For hundreds of years, pancake supers in parish churches have ushered in the Lenten Season.  Always the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, Shrove Tuesday hosts a day of celebration before the ashes mark our foreheads in reminder of our mortal nature and need for God's redemption and grace.

     Pancake suppers are a favorite tradition with a practical purpose dating back for centuries.  At the beginning of Lent, you get rid of all fat, flour and eggs to start your fast.  All of these things were mixed  together and that's how we ended up with pancakes.

     There will be pancakes, bacon, fruit, and more.  Our youth group will be hosting bingo and other fun events throughout the evening.  All are invited - and don't forget to bring in your palms so we can burn them to make ashes for our Ash Wednesday liturgies. 

     Confessions will be heard in the Chapel on Shrove Tuesday (3/5) from 12-1 pm, and on Ash Wednesday (3/6) from 11-11:45am and from 6-6:45pm, or by appointment (contact Father Tripp).


Sunday Evening Small Groups

Sunday Evening Small Groups will be kicking off on February 10. We will follow the same schedule as we did last year with group meetings at 5:00 and 7:00 pm and a light dinner for both groups at 6:00. These groups are a great opportunity to get better acquainted with fellow parishioners and we welcome everyone to join us as often as schedules allow. Groups are open to all and will meet in the Cottages. For more information, please contact Laura Blumenthal

5:00 - 6:00 Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John

Join us as we journey into deeper intimacy with God as we explore the words of John the Evangelist through our study of the Gospel According to John and the First Letter of John. This is a great opportunity to become closer with God and closer with your fellow parishioners.

6:00 pm Dinner for anybody who wants to join us

7:00 - 8:00 Book Study - Crazy Christians: A Call to Follow Jesus by Michael B. Curry

We will study the book Crazy Christians where Bishop Curry calls on us "to be crazy enough to love like Jesus, to give like Jesus, to forgive like Jesus, to do justice, love mercy, walk humbly with God - like Jesus." The book can be purchased through Amazon.
