The Call to a Holy Lent


The season of Lent, forty days of penitence and prayer, begins with the ancient sign of ashes. Imposed on our foreheads with the words “you are dust and to dust you shall return,” the friends of God are reminded of the frailty (and preciousness!) of our lives. In our quest to find meaning and purpose, we are always drawn closer to the life of God in his Son Jesus.

This is a life that begins with baptism.

We keep holy water in our nave so that we can always lay hold of this outward sign of our baptism, reminding us that throughout our journey we are “marked as Christ’s own forever.” Journey with us this Lent, from the ashes to new life.

Please join us. You are always welcome here.
