Holy Trinity’s Lenten Fine Arts Series begins Friday with wine and cheese reception

Published 2:25 pm Tuesday, February 21, 2023

Ash Wednesday services mark the beginning of the Lenten season for many Christian denominations.

During this time, followers will observe a period of fasting and repentance while also practicing self-denial and spiritual discipline. In observance of this time of preparation before the celebration of Easter, the Church of the Holy Trinity will once again offer its Lenten Fine Arts series, which will include a meal and musical programs.

The series will kick off Friday with a wine and cheese reception from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in McInnis Parish Hall, Holy Trinity music director Dorothy Brasfield said.

“From staying informed with local governmental issues to hearing the stories of its people, a hometown newspaper is vital to a community. I have felt privileged to be part of a dedicated team at The Post throughout my tenure and hope that with theirs and with local support, I will be able to continue to grow and hone in on my skills as I help share the stories in Vicksburg. When asked what I like most about my job, my answer is always ‘the people.’
