Lent begins February 14.

This year Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the season of Lent comes a little early. We will have a morning prayer service with the imposition of ashes for those who are interested in Crist Chapel at 7:30 AM.

The Wallkill Valley RCA churches will again be holding special services for the season of Lent. This marks the 80th year of these gatherings. The context for the lessons will be based on the book by Brant Hansen, Blessed are the Misfits, an interesting and different look at the church. Ash Wednesday 2/14, at 7 PM will be in Wallkill with the Rev. Seagren preaching. The remaining services will start with a soup and sandwich meal at 5PM followed by worship at 6 PM.

Lent I 2/18 at Wallkill, the Rev Kobza preaching, Lent II 2/25 at New Hurley, the Rev. O’Connell preaching, Lent III 3/4 at Gardner, the Elder Mallard preaching, Lent IV 3/11 here at Walden, the Rev. Sissel preaching, Lent V 3/18 at Shawangunk, the Elder Ronk preaching, Lent VI 4/9 at New Prospect, the Rev. Dalton preach- ing. There will be a handout in the bulletin as we get closer to Lent.
