Ash Wednesday (Mar 2, 2022)


“When you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites… Anoint your head and wash your face, so that you may not appear to be fasting, except to your Father who is hidden. And your Father who sees what is hidden will repay you.”

Ash Wednesday begins our Lenten journey toward Easter joy.
