“Lent is a time for introspection and self-reflection,
a time to reflect on the core of what it means to live a Christian life
in the midst of great change and uncertainty.”
The Rev. Dr. Scott Stoner, Director,
Living Compass Spirituality & Wellness Ministry Initiative
At St. Mark’s, our Lenten journey begins with Ash Wednesday worship on Wednesday, February 26th at 7 AM and 7 PM. If neither of these times fits your schedule, you are welcome to stop by the Parish Office between 9:30-10:30 or 12:30-1:30 for a brief prayer and the imposition of ashes.
Sunday worship during Lent takes place at 8 AM and 10:30 AM each week. Additionally, we are offering a couple of learning opportunities as we seek to deepen our relationship with God and one another:
Newcomer Series: Are you new to the Episcopal Church or new to St. Mark’s? Or maybe you’ve been coming for a while but want to know what it means to be a “member” of this thing called Church. Whatever your story, wherever you are on your journey in faith, you are invited to join Pastor Debra on Sunday mornings from 9:15 – 10 a.m. beginning Sunday, March 1 and continuing through March 29. If you have any questions or if you would like to RSVP (to help with planning), please email Pastor Debra at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Creation Care Forums: Looking for a Lenten practice or meditation? Concerned about the modern ecological crisis? Pastoral Intern, Carter Schram, will be leading two adult education forums to talk about the concept of creation care and our response as Christians. Explore the theological motivation behind environmental justice and learn more about what the Episcopal Church and St. Mark’s are doing to help. We will gather 3/15 and 3/22 at 9:15am in Bethlehem Chapel. All are welcome to attend and add value to our conversations.
