The Season of Lent at St. Paul’s

ashes on forehead

Ash Wednesday

Wednesday Feb 14 is Ash Wednesday, marking the beginning of the penitential Season of Lent, in the church. Ashes are an ancient sign of penitence. From the Middle Ages it became the custom to begin Lent (the forty days before Easter) by being marked in ash with the sign of the cross. The reminder that we are dust turns our attention to the creative power of God, and God’s ability to heal the brokenness in our lives when we offer that brokenness to God. That turning to God is the work of Lent, preparation for the celebration of Jesus’s resurrection on Easter Day.

On Ash Wednesday, consider coming to one of these services to join with the community of faith to being the Holy Season of Lent:

7:00 am Imposition of Ashes and Holy Eucharist

12:00 Noon Imposition of Ashes and Holy Eucharist

6:00 pm Imposition of Ashes and Holy Eucharist (Childcare is available)

 “You are dust and to dust you shall return.”

6:00 -7:00 PM Lenten Program – Life Transformed: The Way of Love in Lent

The journey through Lent into Easter is a journey with Jesus. We are baptized into his life, self-giving, and death; then, we rise in hope to life transformed. This Lent, you are invited to walk with Jesus in his Way of Love and into the experience of transformed life. Together, we will reflect anew on the loving actions of God as recounted in the Easter Vigil readings. Together, we will walk through the depths of salvation history into the fullness of redemption.

Lenten Meditations

According to The Book of Common Prayer, Lent provides us with the opportunity for self-examination, repentance, prayer, fasting and self-denial; and to read and meditate on God’s holy word (BCP, p 265). This Lenten Season, Episcopal Relief & Development invites you to join in reflecting on your newness in Christ as you journey through Episcopal Relief & Development’s Lenten Meditations. Discover new ways your faith is guiding you through.

Sign up to receive a meditation in your inbox each day. May God richly bless you this Lenten season: https://www.episcopalrelief.org/church-in-action/lent
