SUNDAYS AT OLSC
PREPARING FOR WORSHIP, 7:00 P.M., FEBRUARY 10, ASH WEDNESDAY:Lent begins with a solemn call to fasting and repentance as we begin our journey to the baptismal waters of Easter. As we hear in today’s readings, now is the acceptable time to return to the Lord. During Lent the people of God will reflect on the meaning of their baptism into Christ’s death and resurrection. The sign of ashes suggests our human mortality and frailty. What seems like an ending is really an invitation to make each day a new beginning, in which we are washed in God’s mercy and forgiveness. With the cross on our brow, we long for the spiritual renewal that flows from the springtime Easter feast to come. We will gather for Imposition of Ashes and Holy Communion at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday’s readings and Psalm are:
Joel 2:1-2, 12-17
2 Corinthians 5:20b-6:10
Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21
PREPARING FOR WORSHIP, 10:30 A.M., FEBRUARY 14, FIRST SUNDAY IN LENT:These forty days called Lent are like no other. It is our opportune time to return to the God who rescues; to receive the gifts of God’s grace; to believe with the heart and confess with the mouth the wonder of God’s love in Jesus; and to resist temptation at every turn. This is no small pilgrimage on which we have just embarked. It is a struggle Jesus knew. It is a struggle Jesus shares. The nearness of the Lord, in bread and wine, water and word, will uphold and sustain us. Sunday’s readings and Psalm are:
Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16
