“Convert, turn around, return to me with all your heart.” - Joel 2:12

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the Season of Lent, the 40-day retreat for all Christians to pray, fast, and give alms. In receiving ashes, we are reminded of our baptismal commitment: “Turn away from sin and be faithful to the Gospel” (Thomas Richstatter O.F.M.).

You are invited to come, listen, and journey this Lent with fellow members of the St. John’s community. Join us at Mass or a prayer service for the distribution of ashes:
