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.

Sacred Chapel

Wednesday, February 8 at 7 pm
Wednesday, February 15 at 7 pm

Tom Wright has said: heaven and earth are not far removed from one another but rather are OVERLAPPING, INTERLOCKING SPHERES of God’s good creation. God is close (not far off in the distance) as close to us as our own BREATH itself. Breath is a part of the way God is present to us. As God said to Ezekiel: I will put breath in you, and you will come to life (Ezk. 37:6).

Many want connection with God, but so much seems aligned against it.

  • Are you stressed? Anxious? Take a quiet mid-week retreat.
  • Do you find the world’s problems overwhelming? Join us for some thoughtful considerations.
  • Does human life seem increasingly ugly? Experience the beauty of S A C R E D, an evening chapel at Vanguard University for beauty, presence, and life.

Discover that God is as near to us as our own breath.
