Lent at Wesley

During the season of Lent we continue with regular Sunday worship (11am at Wesley Memorial church and 5pm at the Wesley Foundation) but we also have other opportunities to observe the season leading to Easter.  We hope you’ll consider joining us for some of these special Lenten worship opportunities.  All are welcome.
