Join Us on Our Lenten Journey

We always begin the Season of Lent on Ash Wednesday by being invited to observe a Holy Lent, a time of fasting, prayer, self-examination and preparation for the Easter Feast. We have several opportunities for you to observe Lent. Consider joining us for one or several of the Lenten offerings below.

Free Lent Devotionals Available
We have received Lent devotionals from Living Compass, Practicing Forgiveness with All Your Heart, Soul, Strength, and Mind. They are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the back of the church. The devotional is intended to be used for daily personal reflection through Lent.

Evening Prayer — Thursdays in Lent, at 7:30 p.m. (Church)
This year, we will have Evening Prayer on Thursday nights during Lent, beginning February 15. We will meet at 7:30 p.m. and be finished by 8 p.m. For those newer to The Episcopal Church, Evening Prayer is a much-beloved service in the Anglican tradition. It first appeared in the original Book of Common Prayer as an effort by early reformers to adapt the ancient monastic practice of the Liturgy of Hours into a format more accessible to lay people. For centuries, Anglicans around the world have used it to draw nearer to God and each other. All are welcome.

Poetry and Lent — Sundays in Lent, beginning February 18, at 6 p.m. (location change: first two sessions at church)
Most years, during Lent, it’s our custom to add a food and conversation evening on a Wednesday or Thursday evening. This year, join us for our Lenten discussions Sunday nights at 6 p.m. We will meet at the church the first two Sundays of Lent; the off-site location for the remaining sessions is to be announced.

Sign up here to bring food or drink.

Over food and drink, we will enter deeper into Lent by organizing our conversations around a different poem/poet each week. It’s my hope that my digging into the poems and perhaps even reading them alongside some Lenten scripture, we can mark this important time of year as we move toward Easter. RSVP is handy but not fully necessary.
