Keeping a Holy Lent is a practice we hold dear at Christ Church. Formation offerings provide an opportunity to deepen your faith during this holy season. Please read through the offerings below and consider how you can join with your parish family in this time of prayer, reflection, and connection.
5:45 p.m. - Stations of the Cross - Join the Daughters of the King as they walk and pray the Stations of the Cross. Meet in the church. The stations take approximately 45 minutes.
6:30 p.m. - Soup Supper and Lent Program - Turn - Walking the Way of Love in Lent
Like the disciples, we are called by Jesus to follow the Way of Love. With God’s help, we can turn from the powers of sin, hatred, fear, injustice, and oppression toward the way of truth, love, hope, justice, and freedom. In turning, we reorient our lives to Jesus Christ, falling in love again, again, and again. This Lent, you are invited to join your Christ Church family for a simple soup supper followed by a program that focuses on each of these areas. Hear speakers from around the diocese as they address what it means to walk away from sin, hatred, fear, injustice, and oppression and follow Jesus towards truth, love, hope, justice, and freedom.
