March 1 is Ash Wednesday — the first day of the Christian Lenten Season
Come worship at St. Stephen’s at noon or 6:30 PM. participate in a Litany of Penitence and receive the imposition of ashes on your forehead or just soak in the holy implications of the moment to contemplate how Christians are called to a discipline of faith preparation before Easter.
Lenten Book Study
You are invited to join the Episcopal congregations of the Fort Worth East Deanery in a five week book study of Take This Bread by Sara Miles. It is a spiritual memoir and call to action where the author describes her journey from cynical atheist to religious activist. Miles recounts the establishment of food pantries that now feed thousands of people, making it an inspirational topic for the mission of 4Saints Episcopal Food Pantry and for people seeking purpose in life. Please purchase the book prior to the study from your favorite bookseller. Please RSVP to Judy Cariker: email@example.com. The book study will rotate locations among the four sponsoring parishes on Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:00P.M., March 9 through April 6. A simple soup supper will be provided.
