Lent & Easter

Lent is the season of 40 days leading up to Easter. It is an important time of preparation as we fast, pray, study, and reflect in preparation for the joy of Resurrection of our Lord on Easter Sunday.

Join in at any of our Lenten devotions, services, and studies.



Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent, and Good Friday, the day of our Lord’s Crucifixion, are traditionally days of special devotion and total abstinence. Maundy Thursday is observed with rites recalling the Last Supper and betrayal at Gethsemane.

The weekdays of Lent and every Friday of the year are encouraged as days of fasting. Fasting, in addition to reduced consumption, normally also includes prayer, self-examination and acts of mercy.

Fasting should be achievable and not present too difficult of a hurdle. Some people remove richer foods from their diet, or abstain from eating meat. It is important that fasting be done in remembrance of Christ’s words:

When you fast, do not look gloomy like the hypocrites, for they disfigure their faces that their fasting may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, that your fasting may not be seen by others but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
— Matthew 5:16-18

Study - Lent with the Desert Fathers

This simple book with daily reflections on the lives and sayings of the ancient Monastic women and men will guide us through this season, and will open up for us new experiences of God and his grace in our hearts and lives.

Lent is a desert. We enter this wilderness once a year, seeking the God who dwells in dry, silent places. In this little book, Thomas McKenzie, a Benedictine oblate and Anglican priest, guides you through Lent. Day by day, you’ll hear from the Desert Fathers, masters of Lenten spirituality. Through Fr. Thomas’ personal reflections on their words, you’ll be challenged to walk in trust down this ancient path.
— Fr. Thomas McKenzie
