February 14, 2018 is not only Valentine’s Day but marks the 4th year of St. Andrew’s  Episcopal Church Drive-Thru Ash Wednesday  services. In the time it takes to drive through the church portico, Fr. Roger, the Parish Priest, will pray for pressing needs, anoint you with the imposition of ashes and launch  your Lenten observation with a prayer and inspiration to make Lent 2018 a special spiritual time.  Drive through ashes will be offered at the 505 Bullseye Lake Road, Valparaiso Indiana church campus during morning drive time (7:00 – 8:30 AM) and evening drive time (5:00 – 6:30 PM).

If you have time for a sanctuary service experience, an in-house Noon and  7:00 PM service will be held with prayer, imposition of ashes and Holy Eucharist.

In the turmoil of life, political wrangling, national and international crises, why not spend a few minutes on this historically special day to find a higher level of life and meaning.
