Lenten resources for a spirit-filled season

February 2, 2016
The Public Affairs Office

The holy season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, February 10, and continues to the festive day of Easter on March 27. Resources for Lent 2016 from the Episcopal Church will be available here and include a wide array of prayers, reflections, links, videos, social media, bulletin inserts, and more for all ages to participate in and experience a spirit-filled Lenten season. 



Centering on the theme Go!, daily reflections on a scripture verse containing the word go will be available here and on Facebook here

The reflections, prepared by many authors, will be personal stories, poems, and other ways that the verse is meaningful and related to the theme Go! Among the authors are Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, bishops, Episcopal Church staff, and members of United Thank Offering, Episcopal Migration Ministries, National Association of Episcopal Schools, and Episcopal Relief & Development.
