Ember Days - Serious Prayer and Penance for the World's Suffering

A message from our pastor:

"When I reflect on the world today, it's hard not to notice serious suffering and division. This suffering and division is found in our politics, views on global warming, different religious practices, COVID, the reality of sin, and in tragedies. It is both human-caused, such as in Afghanistan, terrorism in Nigeria, and those of natural causes, like the recent earthquakes in Haiti, and the hurricane in the southern USA. What could we be doing to invite the healing presence of Christ into our world and lives? The answer is serious prayer and penance. Let us join together as a community for three days of prayer and penance for all the intentions I mentioned above, September 15th, 17th and 18th – traditionally known as Ember Days."
