For everything, there is a season..... (Ecclesiastes 3:1) There is the time to celebrate and there is the time to mourn.... Lent is the time for reflection and transformation. Let us look within ourselves during our Lenten journey and aim to change into what we ought to be.

* Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday! There will be Holy Eucharist and the Imposition of Ashes at 9:30 a.m. and at 7 p.m. The other Wednesdays in Lent will follow the following pattern: Holy Eucharist at 9:30 a.m., the Opening Doors session from 10:15 a.m. to noon, and then the Stations of the Cross beginning at 12:15 p.m. for those wishing to attend. There will also be the Wednesday evening liturgies at 7 p.m.

* The Lenten Study led by Rev'd David based on the resource entitled 'Jesus Shaped Life' will begin next Tuesday, March 3, at 7 p.m.
It will continue on Tuesday evenings from March 3 to March 31, inclusive. Then, following a short break, the study will resume on April 21 and conclude on June 2. All are welcome!

* Don't forget - if you plan to attend the Education Day Workshop at the Ascension, it will be held this Saturday coming, February 29, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. By now I am sure you have read about the variety of topics that will be covered. This is just a reminder to sign up at one of the church entrances if you haven't already, or you can email Rev'd Lynn at, or call the office. It is important for you to indicate if you are staying for lunch.

* This is also a reminder of the PWRDF Luncheon that will be happening next Sunday, March 1, immediately following the 11 a.m. service. You may have been called already if you normally attend this PWRDF event; if not, and you would like to attend, you can call Harvey Hunt at 364-1454. If you would like to help in any way, please call Fronie Squibb at 368-7424. We are so grateful that the confirmation candidates and their families will be helping with the serving and the cleaning up on March 1. Once again, it's $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12!

* You may want to mark your calendars for the World Day of Prayer which will be held on Friday, March 6, at 7:30 p.m. at the Salvation Army Citadel on Ashford Drive.

* Thanks in anticipation that some of you will be able to add tinned vegetables, tinned pasta, and/or tinned beans to our foodbank box this week.

* Your 2019 tax receipts lie in wait for your pick-up at the back of the church, along with your Lenten folders and information regarding Lenten activities at the Ascension.

* For more information regarding the shared activities etc. among the four churches (St. Michael's, St. Mary's, the Good Shepherd, the Ascension) during Lent, please go to Lent 2020

Enjoy the pancake supper this evening!

May God be with you on your Lenten Journey,
Jean (On behalf of the Ascension)
