THE SEASON OF LENT

February 18 -- April 4, 2015

Almighty God,
you have created us out of the dust of the earth.
Grant that these ashes may be to us a sign of our
mortality and penitence as we are given everlasting
life through Jesus Christ our Savior.

Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return.
Gen. 3:19

Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, February 18, 2015 (7:00 p.m., St. Francis service with imposition of Ashes) -- a time when we remember we are both dependent upon God and called to be members of the Body of Christ as children of God. Lent ends during Holy Week with Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and concluding the Saturday before Easter.

Lent is a time of fasting and feasting: fasting from hostility and feasting on tenderness; fasting from bitterness and feasting on forgiveness; fasting from judging others and feasting on the Christ within each person.

Lent is a time of preparing ourselves for the renewal of our baptismal vows at the great vigil of Easter (Sunday, April 5, 2015 at 10:30 a.m.).

During Lent, St. Francis offers some of the following opportunities for fasting and feasting:

  • Worship: services each Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
  • Christian education each Sunday for ALL ages (9:30 a.m.)
  • Wednesday evening Lenten series (February 25, March 4, March 11, March 18 and March 25 at 6:00 p.m., parish hall)

Come join us during this holy season of Lent.
