Liturgical Season

Lent

Station of the Cross
St. Mary's Church

"The purpose of Lent is to be a season of fasting, self-denial, spiritual growth, conversion, and simplicity.

"Lent, which comes from the Teutonic (Germanic) word for springtime, can be viewed as a spiritual spring cleaning: a time for taking spiritual inventory and then cleaning out those things which hinder our relationship with Jesus Christ and our service to him."

 



 

Collect for the First Sunday of Lent

Father,
through our observance of Lent,
help us to understand the meaning
of Your Son's death and resurrection,
and teach us to reflect it in our lives.
