March 5 is Ash Wednesday! Pastor Amy and colleagues from two other Hampden churches will be distributing ashes to people on their way to work, or wherever they might be going, starting with the morning rush at the Woodberry Light Rail stop, and going from there to a few other sites in Hampden. Here’s the schedule:
6am – 8:30am: Near the Woodberry Light Rail Stop
11am – 12:30pm: Corner of Roland & 36th Street, outside of Cafe Hon
2pm – 2:45pm: 3838 Roland View Towers (inside)
2:45pm – 3:30pm: 3939 Roland View Towers (inside)
Want to join in the fun for a shift? Or, want to be sure you get ashes, but can’t make the 7pm service? Send Amy an e-mail.
Then at 7pm on March 5, we’ll have an ecumenical Ash Wednesday service at Good Shepherd United Methodist, which is at 3800 Roland Ave. Please join us for this holy time, commemorating the beginning of Lent.
