2022 Lenten Activities

Please see updated schedule.

I love Lent because it always challenges me to look at the direction of my life and reflect on the kind of person I’m becoming. And if I don’t like what I see, I can make the necessary course correction with God’s grace. And it’s also a good time to learn and grow in my faith. Just as many of us do professional development in our careers, it’s important for us to do the same in our spiritual lives, else we’ll become spiritually immature or stagnant. We can grow by doing spiritual reading our-selves from the Bible, or from the life of a saint, or from some other spiritual book. This year the parish is offering a free “Christian Silent Meditation” book for your own reading. We can also participate in one of the parish’s Lenten activities to help us not only grow spiritually but also relationally. Beginning Thursday, March 3, our Lenten activities are:
