The season of Great Lent is the time of preparation for the feast of the Resurrection of Christ. It is the living symbol of man’s entire life which is to be fulfilled in his own resurrection from the dead with Christ. It is a time of renewed devotion: of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. It is a time of repentance, a real renewal of our minds, hearts and deeds in conformity with Christ and his teachings. It is the time, most of all, of our return to the great commandments of loving God and our neighbors.
The rich hymnology of the Church during the time of Great Lent reminds us that life is short and that we will all have to stand before our Lord as Judge. We are reminded during the Lenten Season that we need to be spiritually vigilant and repent before it is too late
May this Season of the Great Fast be one of spiritual renewal and joy. Come join us for Lenten Worship on Wednesday and Friday Evenings.
Our doors and hearts are open to you. Come and See!
