Lent Experience 2021

Lenten Experience Guide

"By observing the end of His life, we discover the beginning of ours."

What is Lent?

So what exactly is Lent? And why do we celebrate it?

Different religious traditions observe Lent in different ways. But essentially, Lent is a 40-day observance leading to Holy Week and Easter. The purpose of participating and engaging in this time of preparation is to get closer to Christ.

You can pick up a Lenten Experience Calendar on Sunday mornings, in the church office during the week, or print your own.

If you would rather engage digitally, you're in the right place!
