A Lenten Journey for You

Lent 2023: Wed Feb 22--Sun April 9


A time of prayer, repentance, discovery, and renewal

Our Lenten journey begins on Ash Wednesday.  On that day, we are marked with the sign of the cross with ashes from the remains of last year’s palms from Palm/Passion Sunday. The cross and the burnt palms are to remind us of Holy Week and Jesus’ suffering and death.  Ashes, throughout the Bible, were signs of repentance and remorse.  The words, “remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return”, remind us of our mortality.  This is the season to remember that we all make mistakes, to remember that we are forgiven, and that we can move on.  We begin our journey to renewal…our journey from death (ashes/cross) to life (Easter/love).

God is on the Move
In the beginning, God moved over the watery chaos, and the earth was formed.  God moved through the desert leading the Hebrews to the Promised Land.  God moved a stone and Jesus was resurrected.  God is moving at All Saints.  Over the next year we will be moving, too, by growing our personal faith, growing our parish relationships, and growing our outreach.  Our Lenten journey offers a variety of ways to target these specific areas while preparing our hearts and souls for the great celebration of Easter.
