Ash Wednesday

Since the sharing of ashes is unavailable to us... please plant the seeds with us on Ash Wednesday, letting the dirt remind you of the God who brings new life after a seed has died.  Here is a copy of the At Home Service that is included in the parish mailing.

“The kind of fasting I want is this: remove the chains of oppression and the yoke of injustice, and let the oppressed go free. Share your food with the hungry and open your homes to the homeless poor. Give clothes to those who have nothing to wear, and do not refuse to help your own relatives."   Isaiah 58:6-7
