Ash Wednesday is February 10, which is the beginning of our Season of Lent. In the Episcopal Church this is traditionally a time for self-reflection and spiritual renewal.
I'd like to invite and encourage you to attend the Ash Wednesday services at 12:00 and 7:00 p.m. Also, this is a reminder that we will have Wednesday Eucharist services throughout Lent at 5:30 p.m. As we worship together, we are seeking spiritual direction as individuals, and also as a faithful church community.
This ties in very well with the Renewal Works program that we've embarked upon together. Thanks to all of you who have already completed the SLI (Spiritual Life Inventory), and we encourage those of you who have not taken this opportunity, to please do so by February 14.
The results of this Renewal effort will help to provide spiritual direction for our Holy Cross parish as we begin our prayers and planning for calling a full-time priest.
Our vestry had a great retreat in January, and one of our take-away messages from the weekend was:
Love God, Love your neighbor...Change the World!
