Ash Wednesday Service

Wednesday, March 1 at 7pm
Needham Chapel, Vanguard University
Since early days Christians have observed with great devotion the time of our Lord’s passion and resurrection and prepared for this by a season of penitence and fasting known as Lent. The Lenten Season begins with Ash Wednesday. By carefully keeping these days, Christians take to heart the call to repentance and the assurance of forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel, and so grow in faith and in devotion to our Lord. Join Holy Trinity for our traditional Ash Wednesday Service on March 1 at 7pm at Vangurad’s Needham Chapel.

Parking passes are necessary on campus. Please pick one up after Sunday services on the Welcome Table or the evening of at the back of the chapel.

Kristin Carmody’s Home
105 Morristown Lane, Costa Mesa, CA 92627
We are taking on a bit of a reading challenge: Gravity and Grace by Simone Weil. This collection of her writings may take a little more time to read through, so you may wish to begin your reading a little early.

April: The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah. A novel about two sisters, set in WWII France. Although it is long, I found it to be very fast reading.
