The season of Lent is a contemplative time inviting us to turn toward Christ. We do this through examination, study, prayer, and other spiritual disciplines that draw us nearer to God. As we approach this holy season, we are invited to consider taking on a new practice or participating in a study or activity to draw nearer to Christ. Here are some options here at our parish:

The Stations of the Cross:

Our set of the Stations of the Cross will be placed in our office windows facing Church St. alongside prayer and meditations. You are invited to walk the stations of the cross during the season of Lent.

The Way of Love in Lent:

Our Sunday morning study February 21 – March 14 will focus on the Episcopal Church’s curriculum which offers seven practices for a Jesus Centered Life. Our scripture for the Sunday services will include one designated lesson for each practice From Ash Wednesday through Easter. John Trumbo has written our Prayers of the People to include these practices for the Way of Love. 

Lenten Madness:

Forward Movement offers a fun and educational activity each Lent called Lenten Madness. Lenten Madness uses a bracket system like March Madness (basketball) to showcase different saints of the Church.

“The format is straightforward: 32 saints are placed into a tournament-like single elimination bracket. Each pairing remains open for a set period of time and vote for their favorite saint. 16 saints make it to the round of the Saintly Sixteen, eight make it to the round of the Elite Eight, four make it to the Faithful Four, two to the Championship; and the winner is awarded the coveted Golden Halo. The first round consists of basic biographical information about each of the 32 saints. Things get a bit more interesting in the subsequent rounds as we offer quotes and quirks, explore legends, and even move into the area of saintly kitsch.” Get your bracket and learn more at: www.lentmadness.org
