Lectionary Texts for Ash Wednesday, Year B - February 18, 2015

The regular mid-week Service of Holy Communion on Ash Wednesday will be in the Sanctuary at 12:15 p.m. rather than in the Chapel. Rev. Tommy Williams will be the homilist for that service as well as at 7 p.m., also in the Sanctuary. His sermon title is “The Cross-Shaped Life.” Both services will include the imposition of ashes. 

A bi-lingual Spanish/English Ash Wednesday service will be conducted on the outdoor Labyrinth at 6 p.m. In case of inclement weather, the service will be on the Labyrinth set up in Fondren Hall.

The Sanctuary will open for prayer from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Ministers will be available to impose ashes in the Sanctuary, on the Labyrinth, and throughout the neighborhood. People also are encouraged to walk the labyrinth after receiving ashes.
