Lent begins Wednesday, Feb 13 and ends with Easter Sunday, Mar 31. Lent is a special time of prayer, penance, sacrifice and good works in preparation of the celebration of Easter.
Purple can symbolize pain, suffering, and therefore mourning and penitence. It is the liturgical color for the Season of Lent.
John McCauslin is creating a Lenten Devotional booklet for this season. It should be ready for distribution on Ash Wednesday. The daily devotions are being written by members & friends of the congregation. There may be some days still available for your devotion to be added. Check the table in the library or call the church office.
