To know the seasons of the Christian year is to know the milestones of Jesus' earthly ministry, from the promise of his coming at Advent through his resurrection at Easter and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. One way the universal church has practiced this historically is by letting Christ's life shape our time—not just at Christmas and Easter, but throughout the year.
The next season of the Christian year is Lent. Lent is all about preparation. We experience the significance of Holy Week more when we're prepared for it by retracing Christ's journey to the Cross. Lent begins on Wednesday, February 26. Join us at St. Vincent's at 6:30 am for our annual Ash Wednesday service.
