February 22 – April 6, 2023
Lent is a time of preparation. For more than a thousand years Christians have spent the six weeks before Easter in special study, prayer, and fasting in order to be prepared for the most holy day of the church year – Easter Day.
There are lots of ways to observe the season of Lent. Many people give up indulgences, some add a spiritual discipline or commit to a special activity in the spirit simple living, prayer, penance, and almsgiving.
Saint Mark’s has a variety of resources and activities to help you observe Lent, including special music offerings, programming for both adult and children’s Sunday morning formation classes, Wednesday Evenings at Saint Mark’s Lenten activities, and resources for meditation and faith at home. We have also compiled a list of some of our favorite activities, podcasts, and online resources and listed them below.
