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, Lent is also a season of invitation. Our Lenten discipline as a congregation has two parts this year. First, please consider participating fully in everything we have to offer in the coming weeks. Second, invite someone to join you, whether it is on Sunday morning, for a fish dinner or for one of the various midweek offerings. We encourage you to observe a "Holy Lent" 

and to bring someone along for the journey.

The Daily Office is the use of prayers to mark the times of the day and to express the traditions of the praying community. Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer are at the heart of our Anglican Spirituality. Lent provides you with the opportunity to participate in Evening Prayer, praising Christ at sunset, every Tuesday at 7:00 P.M.
