Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Ash Wednesday

At St. John's we will have two opportunities for worship on Ash Wednesday: 12:15pm and 7pm. Both services will be in the Chapel. Enter on the Freeway Service Drive side of the building.

Collect for Ash Wednesday (to be said daily in Lent)
Almighty and everlasting God, who hatest nothing that thou has made, and dost forgive the sins of all those who are penitent: create and make in us new and contrite hearts, that we worthily lamenting our sins and acknowledging our wretchedness, may obtain of thee, the God of all mercy, perfect remission and forgiveness. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
