 ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICES  are February 14 at 12:15 pm and 7:30 pm. We are also doing Ashes to go at the Perth Amboy Train Station from 6:15 and to 8:30 am.  Christ Episcopal Church will be at the South Amboy Train Station and Trinity Episcopal at the Woodbridge Train Station at the same times. 

OUR LENTEN CLASS In this year’s Lenten series, we hope to offer an opportunity to reflect on our common call to follow Jesus while at the same time becoming “fishers of people.” We will use a re-commitment to daily prayer and meditation for individuals and households, coupled with community-focused time of weekly reflection on the broader calls and costs of discipleship. We will be doing this series jointly with other churches in the area. Part of our Lenten discipline will be to travel to other churches. Each week we will meet at 6:30pm for a soup dinner and class will be held from 7pm – 8:30pm. It will be helpful if you sign up at church or by calling the church office.
