Resources for learning, praying, and preparing during Lent 

The season of Lent prepares us for the great mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord, the central event of the church year, and the theological core of the Christian faith. Throughout the season of Lent, which begins with Ash Wednesday on March 6, we will explore ways for all ages to observe a holy Lent, in the words of the Book of Common Prayer, “by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.” Please join us as we observe a holy Lent.
