A day of reflection, worship, and renewal for every congregation council member or leadership team member, and every faithful disciple from all synod congregations. Bishop Suarez urges you to commit to one of these events as part of your Lenten discipline. The day will include a powerful Eucharistic worship service involving the renewal of consecration/ordination vows for rostered ministers and the blessing and distributing of chrism oil used in pastoral care.
ROSTERED MINISTERS VEST…COLOR OF THE DAY IS PURPLE.
