Lent 2015 Page 1 of 2

Wednesday, February 18, is Ash Wednesday, when we begin the “season of preparation” called Lent throughout the world.  The Ash Wednesday liturgy will be celebrated at 9:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.  The ashes, made from palm branches left over from last year, are a symbol of our willingness to prepare for the new life of Easter.  This “period of preparation” is centered around a greater devotion to prayer, a willingness to join our sufferings to those of Christ and an increased generosity to those in need.  This is called: prayer, fasting, and almsgiving.

In addition to these positive aspects of preparation, the Church calls our attention to the sinfulness of our lives.  We are invited into repentance, the experience of healing, and the reality of forgiveness and reconciliation.

To help us in living this “season of preparation”, there are several liturgical events.

Revised Oct 7

Many people expressed strong interest in plots and pairs of plots, and so far no one has asked for something wanted by another.  Sales have been strong and steady. For assistance in selecting a plot,  call the church office and they or Larry Hopper will help you.   A Cemetery Map shows the plots, but you must see Larry or visit the office to see which are available.  Lots numbered in red are currently being sold, those numbered in blue are in a wooded area to be sold later.  Orange and green shaded areas indicate walkways and areas reserved for the altar, Columbarium, and trees.

We are now accepting payments!  Plots are $500 each (no tax), please call the church office before you come down or mail in a check.
