We are off and running with the start of Lent. This year I spent Ash Wednesday at Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital. Johns Hopkins is where I am assigned on a weekly basis to work as part of their Pastoral team. My work includes visiting with patients and ministering to the needs of the entire community. Together with the help of the entire pastoral care department we were able to provide ashes to over 450 patients, staff members and visitors. It was a beautiful experience to be able to be part of Ash Wednesday in this manner and I found it a powerful experience.
