Ash Wednesday services will be held at St. Stephen’s at 12 noon and 7 p.m.

For Christians, the day marks the beginning of the 40 days of Lent, which commemorate the 40 days that Christ fasted in the desert.

“As you enter Lent, consider how you will live in solidarity with those who are hungry, or broken, or ill in one way or another,” Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said in her Lenten message.

You are invited to join us as we begin our Lenten journey!
