Lent 2019 began on Ash Wednesday, March 5. From the Book of Common Prayer:
I invite you, therefore, in the name of the Church, 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.
Here is a brief look at what went on around Province II
Every congregation in the province had some event on Ash Wednesday. Not everyone shared photos, so these are just a small peek at what went on. For example, Rev. Lee Crawford, an Episcopal priest at the Church of Our Saviour in Killington, was at Killington Peak Wednesday offering ashes to skiers and riders at Killington Resort, but the story and photo were from a news service - check it out! Several of our bishops made videos and public statements about Lent and its importance.
