Ash Wednesday Services Planned in Brick

Wednesday, Feb. 13, is Ash Wednesday this year

Ash Wednesday services will take place at several churches in Brick this week.

I appreciate Brick Patch's providing us this information. I agree with BA's comment about being grateful that more people weren't killed by Superstorm Sandy. I'd ask for prayers for those whose lives will never be the same and those of us who are struggling to re-build our lives.
