Invitation to a Holy Lent

Invitation to a Holy Lent

As Ash Wednesday approaches, Bishop Scott Mayer invites us into a holy Lent.  Lent is the liturgical season that begins with Ash Wednesday and continues for approximately 40 days before culminating in Easter Sunday.

On Ash Wednesday, Episcopalians and other Christians join in the ancient ritual of having a cross of ash put on our foreheads as a reminder of our mortality. There are many ways to observe Lent, several of which are mentioned in the Prayer Book liturgy for Ash Wednesday: self-examination and repentance; prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.
