Lenten, Holy Week & Easter
Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40 days of preparation for the Easter season. "We invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, 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, 265). The belief is that our consistent participation in these practices — like exercise we do for our physical health — improves our spiritual well-being by stripping away all that is unnecessary and becoming more mindful of how God is working in our lives. Challenge yourself this year and go beyond the usual practice of “giving up” something. Now is a great time to take stock of your spiritual life and to grow in it. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, Trinity welcomes you.
