Every year on the first Wednesday in Lent youth aged 5 to 18 are invited to participate in St John's Ash Wednesday Youth Program. The program runs from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Youth can be dropped off at the Brock St entrance starting at 8:00 a.m. and supervision is provided until 4:00 p.m. All youth are welcome to attend, especially those raised in the Anglican or Lutheran traditions.
The program includes music, a craft/creative time, time for prayer and conversation, a scavenger hunt around the parish buildings, and participation in the Ash Wednesday Liturgy with the adult congregation at 10:00 a.m. Healthy snacks and lunch are provided. There is no cost for the day.
