Lent is a forty-day period before Easter. It begins on Ash Wednesday. We skip Sundays when we count the forty days, because Sundays commemorate the Resurrection. This year Lent begins on February 22 and ends on April 7, the day before Easter. Lent is a season of reconciliation, a season for reflection and soul-searching. Lent originated in the very earliest days of the Church as a preparatory time for Easter, when the followers of Jesus affirmed their faith and nurtured their relationship to the church, and when new converts were instructed in the faith to prepare themselves for baptism.
We have a full array of services, events, and studies to help you keep a holy Lent. Please join us.
