Ash Wednesday
  [More]

The Chapel will be open on Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, March 1, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. All are welcome to enter the silence, to light a candle, to kneel at the altar, or to sit in the stillness. The Labyrinth Path of Prayer, a simple metaphor for life's journey, will be available for meditative walks.

Members of the clergy will be present throughout the day to offer the blessing of hands - a symbol that one is either opening the palms for service, or releasing a habit or unhealthy practice. God will lead you to your own decisions and will also be pleased that you have set aside time for contemplation of his will. In addition, there will be two Ash Wednesday services in the Nave: noon and 6 p.m.
