*This liturgy is especially designed for children, but open to all ages, to prepare hearts and minds to engage in the season of Lent, a time of repentance, turning around, cleaning out. Lent is a time to prepare ourselves to receive the joy of Easter resurrection.  

We will gather in the Christ Church Memorial Garden to bury the alleluia banner and continue the liturgy in the chapel with the imposition of ashes and a celebration of the Holy Eucharist.  

The imposition of Ashes reminds us of our identity as children of God in need of forgiveness and God’s mercy and compassion as one who is always ready and willing to forgive.  

All are welcome.
