As we begin our observation of the season of Lent, join us for the Imposition of Ashes following the 7:30 am Lauds service and the 11:45 Midday Office, or following Eucharist at 5:45 pm.

If you have sinned, do not lose hope because of your error.
Pray instead.

On the other hand, if you have done something good,
never presume too much on account of your goodness.
Never congratulate yourself excessively.

Never look down on someone else for sinning,
and remember that when the wayward soul prays and repents of doing wrong,
the Lord will raise that person up,
as he did Lazarus.

Aelfric of Eynsham (c. 955 – c. 1010)
