Lent 2018

On the Sundays in Lent this year, we are going to be marking some special days of the season, most of which we don't often get to participate in.

 

Sunday Feb. 18, the first Sunday in Lent, we will have an Ash Wednesday service (the traditional start to Lent). There will be communion and ashes shared at this service.

 

The rest of the Sundays in Lent will walk through Holy Week,

as recorded in the Gospel of Mark, chapters 11-15:

 

Sunday, Feb. 25, we will celebrate Palm Sunday, Mark 11:1-11.

Sunday, March 4, we will mark Holy Monday, Mark 11:12-19.

Sunday, March 11, we will mark Holy Tuesday, Mark 11:20-13:37.

Sunday, March 18, we will mark Holy Wednesday, Mark 14:1-11.

Sunday, March 25, we will honour from Maundy Thursday to Good Friday, Mark 14:12-15:47.

There will be communion at this service.

Sunday, April 1 is Easter!
