Ash Wednesday worship (Ottawa Lutherans)
Feb 14 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

With Imposition of Ashes — a ritual to ground us in our humanity — and Holy Communion to remind us that God in Jesus walks with us on our earthly and sometimes painful journey through life and death.

This year, congregations of the Ottawa Ministry Area (Ottawa Lutherans) are gathering together to worship on Ash Wednesday, at two locations and at different times in the day; first, Resurrection Lutheran Church, Orleans (1325 Gaultois Ave) at 2pm; and, then at Faith for 7pm.

This worship service is a ministry of Ottawa Lutherans.

Christian Meditation
Feb 14 @ 5:00 pm – 5:45 pm

Following the Christian Meditation tradition of contemplative prayer, we gather to sit in silence and stillness for twenty minutes, focusing on a prayer word and repeating it interiorly and faithfully, as we enter the prayer of Jesus Christ. We also listen to a recording by teachers in this tradition (eg. John Main, Laurence Freeman), and reflect together briefly on this practice of prayer and our understanding of it. This time together provides an oasis of calm and concentration in a busy life of distraction and rapid mobility.
