Lent Events & Holy Week at Holy Trinity

Posted by Katie Sopcik on

OBSERVING LENT

The Book of Common Prayer invites us to the “observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.” The season of Lent is March 6 –April 20. Holy Week begins April 14. 

Ash Wednesday Services

This somber service prepares us to observe a holy Lent with the Imposition of Ashes. 

Wednesday, March 6, 7:30 a.m., 12:15 p.m., and 5:30 p.m. at Holy Trinity in the Church, 

7 p.m. at the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, 901 E. Friendly Ave.

Lenten Weekday Worship, beginning March 12

During the season of Lent, we will offer three weekday services: 

Tuesdays at 5:30 p.m.: Holy Eucharist with Healing

Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m.: Stillpoint: A Contemplative Eucharist, led by staff clergy.

Thursdays at 5:30 p.m.: A short, traditional Eucharist, with a Lenten reflection

Lenten Events

Lenten Music Series, Wednesdays, March 13–April 17, 12:15–12:45 p.m., Church: Holy Trinity will offer a Lenten Music Series on Wednesdays from 12:15–12:45 p.m. in the church from March 13–April 17. These Lenten musical meditations are designed to enrich your personal experience during Lent, providing a time for you to leave the busyness of your day and hear some beautiful music. The free programs will feature musicians of Holy Trinity and include music of J. S. Bach, Rachmaninoff,  Franck, Mozart, Beethoven and Debussy.

Holy Week Labyrinth Walks: During this solemn week, experience the labyrinth’s sacred pattern and path. As you symbolically make the walk with Christ to Jerusalem, use the labyrinth as a tool for prayer. A Holy Week reflection facilitated by one of the labyrinth keepers will precede each walk. Attend any or all of these walks. Bring a journal if desired. Weather permitting.

Monday–Thursday, April 15–18, 12:15–1 p.m. and Good Friday, April 19, 11–11:45 a.m.
