Ash Wednesday Services and Ashes March 2
March 2 is Ash Wednesday and St. George's is offering two services with Holy Communion and Imposition of Ashes, at 12 noon and 7 pm. Both services will be in the main sanctuary. The 7 pm service will be livestreamed via Zoom and YouTube. Connie+ will also be available at the church from 8:00 - 9:00 am and 1:30-2:30 pm for individual prayer and Imposition of Ashes.
Come Make Prayer Beads as a Lenten Practice on March 6
On Sunday, March 6 at 11:30 am there will be a prayer bead making workshop in the parish hall. The church will provide the beads and we are looking for volunteers who are willing to put the sets of beads together. No experience is necessary; directions and support will be given. These sets will be available to those who would like them as a devotional practice and will also stock the rector's supply of prayer beads to give out to those who might benefit from them, similar to prayer shawls.
Bring in Your Palms
Ash Wednesday is March 2 and this means that Karen Horrocks, head of St. George's Altar Guild, will be burning last year's palms to make the ashes. So if you have palms from previous years to bring in, now is the time! There will be a basket for palms on the credenza outside the office. Any palms brought in by Thursday, February 24 will be used in this year's ashes.
