Welcome to Lent at St. Mary's! Lent is a season of spiritual preparation for Holy Week and Easter. It is a time for renewed commitment to our spiritual lives, and of looking into our hearts to see how God would have us amend our lives so that we may continue to follow on the Way of Love.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 22. On Ash Wednesday we place ashes on the forehead as a reminder of our mortality, our dependence on God, and our commitment to the coming season of spiritual renewal.
We will have two different classes going in the season of Lent. Episcopal 101, an introduction to the Episcopal Church on Saturdays at 4pm, and a program called "Who is my Neighbor," including a soup supper on Wednesdays at 6:30pm.
A daily devotion, sponsored by Episcopal Relief and Development and written by our rector, Rev. Robin, is available for daily email or pdf download. We will be using this devotional material in conjunction with our Wednesday class.
