Observe the beginning of Lent, the 40 days of preparation to celebrate Easter, with a worship service of readings, prayers and the marking of ash on your forehead or hand to remind you of your own mortality and fallibility. This brief service will be followed by a time of silent prayer and reflection in the sanctuary. All are welcome.
