Lent at St. Paul’s

“Remember that you are dust…”

All are welcome to begin your observance of Lent with an

Ash Wednesday Eucharist

February 26th at 7:30 p.m.

Featuring the choir, homily, and the Imposition of Ashes

~

For those who wish to receive their ashes in the morning, they will be available at a special service of Morning Prayer in the Chapel, beginning at 8:30 a.m. and lasting roughly half an hour.

 

Lenten Meditation Booklets from Episcopal Relief and Development

Copies of a Lenten Meditation Booklet from Episcopal Relief and Development are available in the Narthex for you to pick up.  For each day, there is a verse of scripture and a short, one-page meditation to spark our spiritual imagination.  The meditations are written by various lay and ordained leaders in the church, and reflect a cross section of voices from The Episcopal Church.  We hope they help to deepen your prayer life this Lent!

 

Who will win the Golden Halo? LENT MADNESS Has Begun!

Each year in Lent, The Episcopal Church holds our own version of “March Madness” featuring many of the various Saints that we commemorate in our calendar. This year, 32 saints have been placed into a bracket, to face off in daily “head to head” competition – conducted online by popular vote! Every member of the parish is invited to learn more about this years’ 32 Saints and to complete your own bracket, by picking up a booklet in the Narthex. Completed brackets must be posted in the Parish Hall by Ash Wednesday, February 26. Whichever bracket earns the most points through the tournament will be crowned the St. Paul’s winner and receive a prize on Easter Sunday. You can vote for your favorite Saint each day in Lent by visiting LENTMADNESS.ORG.
