2nd March @ 7:30pm

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent.

Lent and giving things up are two ideas strongly linked together. The secular Veganuary – or Dry January— has taken the place of Lent for many people. They are basically about improving your physical health. Lent can still be a special time for Christians who want to work on their spiritual life, not just their waistlines or livers.

In recent years, we have held a service of Holy Communion in the Quiet Room on the evening of Ash Wednesday. We plan to do that this year as well. We will be joined – via YouTube – by a wonderful Franciscan monk who has some powerful things to say about following Christ in Lent.
