ASH WEDNESDAY – FEBRUARY 26, 7AM, NOON, 7PM IN THE CHAPEL

Ash Wednesday is the liturgical start to the season of Lent. It occurs 40 days (not including Sundays) before Easter. We observe Ash Wednesday by putting ashes on our heads to remind us of our mortality as we head into this penitential season. Observing Lent through liturgy, prayer, penitence, and fasting (food or otherwise) helps us connect with God in the suffering of Christ – it also makes the joy of Easter more profound. Join us to begin our Lenten observance at one of our three liturgies. 

 

SCOUT SUNDAY – MARCH 1

St. Gregory's is the Chartered Organization for Pack 50 (Cub Scouts) and Troop 50 (Scouts BSA), and also supports the Deerfield Girl Scouts Troop.  The organizations will participate during the 10AM service and provide a brief update on these ministries. All Scouts are invited to wear your uniforms to services this day.
