Lent / March Happenings

"Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. He fasted forty days and forty nights, and afterwards he was famished."
Matt. 4:1-2


 

Lenten Liturgy & Changes

Friends, our liturgy will change during the season of Lent, not only because of the penitential season, but as we incorporate the wonderful new liturgies of the ACNA now that they are complete. These new liturgies beautifully capture historic Anglican prayer services predating the Episcopal prayer book of 1979. There are changes to some of the familiar readings, so feel free to review the new liturgy before Sunday. Download it here.

Please note that we have added back the filioque clause ("proceeds from the Father and the Son") to the Nicene Creed to harmonize with the new prayer book and our ACNA family as much as we can. 

ALSO.. Don't forget about the individual and family resources for Lent that can be found here
