Centering on the theme “Things done and left undone,” Lenten prayers, video reflections and penitential meditations have been assembled by the program staff of The Episcopal Church for use throughout the 40 day Lenten season.

Designed for personal reflections as well as community services, the Lenten resources are available on web special Resources page:

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, this year February 17. Lent is a time of reflection, prayer, penance and meditation. The Lenten season concludes with the celebration of Easter on Sunday, April 4.

“Lent is a time to reflect and pray, and we have compiled resources that will appeal to the depth and breadth of worship and prayer in The Episcopal Church,” explained Anne Rudig, Director of Communication.

The Lenten Resources will be available throughout Lent and Easter.

Among the Lenten Resources are:

– Stations of the Cross designed by young adults

– Lectionary-based lesson plans

– Hospitality, immigration and refugee reflections from Episcopal Public Policy Network

– Lenten reflections from Episcopal Relief & Development

Additional resources will be added throughout Lent.

The Episcopal Church welcomes all who worship Jesus Christ in 109 dioceses and three regional areas in 16 nations. The Episcopal Church is a member province of the worldwide Anglican Communion.
