Thanks to the parishes from all around the Diocese that sent us photos of their Ash Wednesday services!

In between the Services, the clergy visited homebound parishioners with Ashes and Eucharist.  One of the parishioners was Mrs. Ruth Hopson, 104 years old, and St. Thomas oldest member.  She is pictured in the second photo below.

New Hope does not have a train or bus station, but we do have bars and clubs. We for the past few years,  St. Philip’s has gone out during happy hour to connect with our community, offer prayer and ashes. In a small ways it allows the Church to move beyond its walls.
