Lent is the season that follows Epiphany. It is a time for reflection and repentance. Ash Wednesday, February 10, marks the first day of Lent. In our services on that day ashes are placed on the foreheads of believers as a sign of repentance. We are pleased to welcome the Rt. Rev. Dr. Grant LeMarquand as our preacher for our Ash Wednesday services. Grant is assistant bishop in the Anglican Diocese of Egypt, serving as bishop in the Horn of Africa (Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia and Somalia). Grant and his wife, Dr. Wendy LeMarquand, recently hosted a mission team sent from Ascension. Childcare is provided for both services.
Theme: The Lord’s Prayer
6:30pm – 8:30pm

It has become our custom at Ascension to host a dinner teaching series during Lent. We have an excellent subject and a very exciting line up of some of the best speakers in the diocese! Beginning at 6:30pm (6:20pm for early birds!), we will enjoy a catered buffet dinner in the parish hall. Suggested donations for the dinner are as follows: $7/adult, $3/child, $20 family maximum. The dinner series is an all family event. While adults enjoy the talks, there will be childcare and programming for children that follows the same theme. There will also be a program for the youth. We hope you will plan on joining us! The teaching will be on The Lord’s Prayer. Details of each of the five Fridays can be found here.
Our February edition of The Ascent is available here. Included in this edition are articles on our Lenten Dinner Course that begins Friday, February 19 and lasts for a total of 5 weeks. as well as updates on program events happening at Church of the Ascension.
