Remember child that you are dust and to dust you shall return.
Repent and turn to Christ.
And so it begins. There will be two opportunities for you to receive the imposition of ashes at St Mark’s – at 10am and 7.30pm. We will be focussing on the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Today we think about those things which may hold us back, weigh us down, prevent us from holding our heads up in the presence of God.
You can pick up a leaflet on Journeying through Lent in Prayer and join us at Morning Prayer each day at 9.30am. Or if you can’t be with us, you can take a copy of Morning Prayer away with you and do it on the bus or before you go to work.
I invite you therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial: and by reading and meditating on God’s holy word.
