February 14th is also Ash Wednesday this year. So grab your loved ones and come have a soup and bread supper at 6:00 pm. The service follows at 7:00pm.
This is the beginning of Lent. For some it is a time of fasting, of denying oneself of something. It is a time of repentance. We confess we are sinners and “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return.” Hence the ashes.
