Lent starts on Ash Wednesday, February 17. We would usually hold a service for the imposition of ashes which will not be possible this year. Stay tuned to learn how this will be handled this year.
Have a think about what you would like to give up this year, or alternatively take up? While it is traditional to give up such things as alcohol, smoking, chocolate or the like, it is also a time to take up a new hobby, craft or skill. Have you wanted to learn to paint, practice a new language or brush up on your cooking skills? Now is the time to do this. It is a way to make this time of Covid more bearable, and will be a way to have something positive to come out of the situation.
