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:
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?"
Faith in the Episcopal Tradition
Available for online viewing beginning Sunday, March 22. Click here to watch.
Open to all and especially appropriate to anyone who would like to become a member of St. Mark's and/or make a public affirmation of faith by being confirmed, received or reaffirmed when the Bishop visits on April 26.
Episcopal Relief & Development (ERD) Sunday is the first Sunday in Lent (March 1). Parishioners are encouraged to collect spare change throughout the season using available mite boxes to give back to ERD. Mite boxes may be returned on Palm Sunday and/or Easter.
