Lent 2019

Lent Icon

As we enter the season of Lent we will notice a difference in our worship. During this Lenten season, we will begin each worship service in silence. There will be no prelude or opening hymn. The congregation will be invited to stand when they hear the chime of the bell indicating the service is to begin. We will continue our Lenten practice of silence throughout the service, after the lessons, the sermon, and Holy Eucharist.  We invite you to engage these moments of stillness to allow the Holy Spirit to speak to your mind and heart.

Reconciliation of a Penitent will be offered on Holy Saturday, April 20, between 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm or by appointment during the Lenten season. The rite of Reconciliation of Penitent may be found in the Book of Common Prayer, page 446. Please contact me at:

Come to the parish hall for Morning Prayer at 7:00 am, Monday through Friday mornings during Lent and Holy Week (beginning March 7). In Morning Prayer, the Scripture stories are continuous, and our shared leadership helps us become aware of the richness and blessings of that daily liturgy in the Book of Common Prayer. We are few, we meet in the library in Cummins Hall, we’ll be praying for you and hoping you’ll join us.

 Sunday School: Mite boxes

Many people remember the Lenten practice of having a little mite box during Lent in which to put a daily offering-in thanksgiving, in reverence, in penitence, in affirmation, in joy - all the things that brought us closer to a godly life and to God. As a child I was usually repenting, but there are countless ways and reasons to approach God. The children in Sunday School will each have a little mite box during Lent. If an adult would also like one there will be some in the information center. They will be offered up on Easter Sunday in the offertory. The main idea is the daily walk with God, and trying to do his will, the best we all can
