Pancakes and Parish Meeting on Feb 17. On the last day before the season of Lent, our whole church will get together for pancakes and a parish update. This is that family meeting where things get sticky, you laugh a lot, and raise some money for goats and World vision. Dinner starts at 6pm in the Fellowship Hall and the parish update starts at 7.
Ash Wednesday Services on Feb 18 at 6:30 am, 12pm, and 7:30 pm. Nursery will be provided at 12pm and 7:30 pm.
Lenten devotional guide. Restoration has assembled a booklet composed of reflections and visual art from our own members of the congregation. We would love if you picked up a copy and use it to guide you through this season.
Last Evensong of the season tonight: We will gather tonight from 7-8 to pray and sing by candlelight. Consider coming to Friday morning prayer through Lent.
Friday morning prayer. Lent is a season with a focus on prayer, and one way we will observe the season is by gathering for morning prayer on Friday, 7-7:35am, at the church. Hope you can join us as we begin the day together in a posture of prayer.

Washington-Lee Parking Garage @ 15 St. Please do not park on Quincy St. or the side streets. Parking toward Ballston in the Washington-Lee High School parking garage is one of the best ways that we can love our neighbors, and it is only a short walk or shuttle ride away. Thank you!
