lent at st. mark's

“Lent” comes from the ancient word lencton - the time of year when the days grow long. 

The season begins on Ash Wednesday and ends with Easter Sunday, covering forty days (excluding Sundays). 

The five Sundays during Lent are followed by Palm Sunday, which marks the beginning of Holy Week.

This year at St. Mark’s, we hope that as part of your preparation you will rededicate yourself to the practice of prayer. 

Our Lenten Discipline as a community in 2018 is praying. This page outlines the many opportunities during lent to learn and

explore prayer. We hope that you will participate fully in these offerings

opportunities to explore

The Art & Practice of Prayer - Tuesday Evenings beginning at 6:00 P.M.

February 20, 27, March 6, 13, 20, 27

Does it simply consist of getting something out of God or does it tap into something deeper in us? Tuesday evenings will start the discussion as to what prayer means and how we regain a practice that is at the core of who we are. Evenings will begin at 6:00 P.M. with a simple meal and creative video designed to help us think faithfully and critically about prayer.  We will conclude with Eucharist (with prayers for St. Mark’s families) by 7:30 P.M.


Breath of the Soul - Sunday Mornings beginning at 10:00 A.M.

February 25, March 4, 11, 18

The Breath of the Soul by Joan Chittister attends to what we human beings are most inclined to forget, preparing for and engaging in prayer. This book study is an examination of what we ourselves must bring to the discipline of prayer whatever form it takes in order to make prayer authentic and real, a deep and profound part of our lives.
