Ash Wednesday Services
Ash Cross
The sidewalks and parking lot at Grace are clear of snow (thanks to Belinda and Roger Perna and Ken Lyon), ready for Ash Wednesday services today at noon in the Memorial Chapel and at 7 pm in the church.

The Reverend Raymond Betts will preside over the noon service, which will be a quiet service without Eucharist. Father John Bower will celebrate Eucharist at the 7 pm service. Ashes will be imposed at both services for those who desire them.

Mission Council will meet a half hour early today, at 5:30 pm, so Council members can attend the 7 pm service.
Daily Office to be Read Daily During Lent

Roger Perna and Ken Lyon will read Morning Prayer every weekday during lent at noon in the Memorial Chapel, starting tomorrow (Thursday). All are welcome to join them in this Lenten observance. The service will last approximately 20 minutes.

eGraceNotes is published every week or two or three. Our primary purpose is to help keep members and friends of Grace Church up-to-date on what's happening at Grace.

While we try our best to represent the Grace Church congregation, opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of anyone other than the editor (and perhaps not even his!).

The content of eGraceNotes depends on what news is provided us. Thus, the fact that something appears or doesn't appear in eGraceNotes is more likely a matter of whether or not someone provided information to publish rather than editorial bias. Send news that you think would be interesting to

Photos in eGraceNotes are often edited to remove extraneous material.
