Ash Wednesday at St. Paul's

The First Day of Lent: Ash WednesdayFebruary 10th

The Proper Liturgy of the Day
Imposition of Ashes, Litany of Penitence, Holy Communion will be observed at
 7:00am, Noon, and 5:30pm (with hymns)

Almighty and everlasting God, you hate nothing you have made and forgive the sins of all who are penitent:  Create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we, worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of you, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen. (Collect for Ash Wednesday, BCP p. 264)

Create and Make in Me a New Heart

Lent is a gift for us. It is a time when we are called to look deep within ourselves and invite God into those corners of our lives we find easiest to ignore.

As a companion to this season of self-examination, we have again compiled daily meditations offered by the people and clergy of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, some guest writers, or well-known theologians from different eras of the church's history.

This Lent as we open ourselves up to a fuller awareness of God's presence in our lives, may the thoughts and prayers of these meditations remind you that the Spirit is tirelessly at work around us - in Lent and always - to create and make in us new hearts ready to bear witness to the resurrection.

O God, who before the passion of your only ­begotten Son revealed his glory upon the holy mountain: Grant to us that we, beholding by faith the light of his countenance, may be strengthened to bear our cross, and be changed into his likeness from glory to glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
