Join Moderator Richard Bott and the General Council staff for "A Litany of the Masks for Ash Wednesday". This livestream from the General Council chapel service will offer a time for prayer, scripture, and help us prepare for our Lenten spiritual practice.
We invite you to attend with a short piece of string or yarn (20 cm), or some Lego, or a string with seven beads, or a ribbon and seven buttons...and some glue! And please bring your mask. (You don't need to wear it, but please bring it.)
When: Wednesday, February 17 at 9:00 a.m. EST / 6:00 a.m. PST on The United Church of Canada YouTube channel
Note: There will be parts of this chapel time in English and in French, however, there will not be simultaneous translation for this gathering. The service will be recorded for later viewing.
