"We will find peace, we will be builders of peace and will spread peace around us." Pope Francis

Lord, in this holy season of Lent, help us to turn our minds and hearts back to you. Lead us into sincere repentance and renew our lives with your grace. While we are sinners, help us to remember your spirit within us and help us to remember your loving mercy.

This Ash Wednesday, may the crosses of ashes that mark our foreheads be a reminder to us and to those we meet, that we belong to your Son. May your worship and prayer be sustained throughout these 40 days of Lent. Bring us refreshed and renewed to the joyous celebration of Christ’s resurrection at Easter.
