“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
