Lent I

Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday

An Introduction to Life Transformed: The Way of Love in Lent  9:45 am

ZOOM

Join us this Sunday morning as we introduce this years' Lenten program. 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, we are inviting you to walk with Jesus in his Way of Love and into the experience of transformed life. Plan on joining us starting Wednesday, February 24 at 7 pm on ZOOM as we 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.

Dear friends,

 

I do want to invite you to the observance of a Holy Lent starting on Ash Wednesday, February 17 and continuing through at least 3 pm Good Friday, the hour at which our Lord said, “It is finished.” Though in-person Ash Wednesday services will not be offered, a recorded service will be posted and Lent in a Bag will be delivered to your home! (If you do not receive a bag and want one please contact sharon@graceepiscopallexington.org)

 

Just a word about the imposition of ashes.   Continued here
