Lent at St. Mark's

The Episcopal Church invites us to keep the season of Lent holy “by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.” (Book of Common Prayer p 265).  Below are some activities St. Mark's offers throughout the season:

Lenten Devotions

This year, we are partnering with Trinity School for Ministry to provide daily Lenten devotionals.

  • Prior to Lent, complimentary devotion books will be available in the chapel, back of church and church office.
  • Parishioners may also sign up to receive devotions for the coming week via email by subscribing to emails from Trinity School for Ministry. Click here to subscribe to emails.  *When subscribing, select "Advent and Lenten Devotionals" under "Which emails would you like to receive?" 
  • Throughout the season of Lent, devotionals are also available to view online by clicking here
