Gettin’ Your Lent On- Shrove Tuesday, Ash Wednesday, and More…

Ready or not Lent is upon us but I promise you will be prepared. St. Anne’s has a very busy week to help you prepare for Lent and have some fun in the process. Hey, whoever said a Holy Lent can’t be a fun one too???

Shrove Tuesday begins at 5:30pm with all-you-can-eat pancakes for $5 a person or $15 a family. All proceeds go to Hillcrest Transitional Housing.

Lent begins on Wednesday, March 5th. You have a couple of options for the Imposition of Ashes. Our traditional service will be at 7pm; we will also be offering Ashes to Go at Whistle Stop Coffee and Mercantile from 9am until 10:30am.

This year, we will be participating in Lent Madness as a parish. A bracket will be present at church so you can follow your favorite saints as they strive to win The Golden Halo. I encourage you to visit the Lent Madness  website every day to vote for the saint of that day and to learn more about many of our saints.

Lent is a vital part of our church year and the Christian life; I encourage you to find ways to commit to a Holy Lent. I promise you will be changed.
