The Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America, in the 19th century, observed Ash Wednesday: “as a day of fasting and humiliation, wherein we are publicly to confess our sins, meekly to implore God’s mercy and forgiveness, and humbly to intercede for the continuance of his favor.”
This year, due to COVID-19/Coronavirus gathering restrictions and at the instruction from the Diocese of New York, we are worshiping online via Zoom. Please join us at 7:00 pm on Wednesday evening for a service or prayer, music and penitence as we usher in Lent, please click here to join in.
