There is a Special Lent Letter attached from Alan for your review. Also attached is a Lenten 40 day calendar Marrianna Westinghouse shared. It’s meant to be FUN! And at the end of the 40 days, it would wonderful if the tally was part of your LENT OFFERING.
The Ash Wednesday Service will be emailed and posted on FaceBook at 9am on February 17.
'RENEW', A Lenten video series with Bishop Anna Greenword-Lee, begins on Ash Wednesday, February 17 and marks the beginning of the 40 days of Lent. The word 'Lent' can be traced to an Old English word 'lecten' which is related to 'lengthen' referring to the lengthening of days in the Spring season. It's a time for spiritual renewal and what some call a "spiritual spring". So we offer you this series, 'Renew', consisting of seven 2-minute reflections during these 40 long days before Easter. The videos will be available on Twitter, Facebook and in the media section of the Diocesan website beginning Wednesday, February 17 and each Wednesday after that during Lent.
The Living Well Through Lent 2021 LISTENING WITH ALL YOUR HEART, SOUL, STRENGTH, AND MIND free booklets (all 24 of them) have just arrived. This guide will help you move through Lent prayerfully. Either call or email KAT to reserve your copy. You can pick up at the office (KAT will leave outside). If you are housebound we can deliver, or KAT can take some home to Parksville to leave outside on your front step!
