Lent Begins

Today is Ash Wednesday, the first day of the celebration of the season of Lent.

Lent is that Christian liturgical season of 40 days that remembers Jesus of Nazareth's life, his death, and, at Easter, his Resurrection.

As a reminder of his last three days, the Catholic Church often prays the Stations of the Cross.

In our Marie Louise Trichet Gallery, we have on exhibit 15 paintings of artist Janet Mc Kenzie with her visual rendition of  Jesus' journey to his death and ultimate Resurrection.

This exhibit is titled: "Embracing Transformation:The Journey and the Cross."

The public is invited to come to Wisdom House to view and pray with these magnificent paintings and enter into the spirit of this season.

Gallery hours are Monday - Saturday, 10 am - 4 pm. If requested, a short introduction to the exhibit can be given. Contact us at 860-567-3163 or email
