Church Season

The Liturgical Season Of Lent

Tissot   Jesus Tempted in the Wilderness medium
This year the season starts on February 14th (Ash Wednesday) and ends on March 25th (Holy Saturday). The traditional fast of 40 days does not include Sundays.

Purple is the season's colour, though this gets complex near Easter. Red is used from Passion Sunday or Palm Sunday.

In other contexts there may be great wisdom in adopting Lent as an identifiable season of preparation for Easter. All of us need to sanctify our calendars and make clear that nothing in the winter and springtime of the year—not Valentine’s Day, not spring break, not March Madness, not even the hockey playoffs—is as important to our identity as Jesus’ death and resurrection.

A blessed day was had by all when Bishop Greg spent Sunday at St. Peter’s.  Bishop Greg shared a solid message about living our faith and discussed how different the world would be if we were constantly in prayer throughout our regular day. He also took part in the Children’s Teaching.

Scripture - Luke 2.22-40

And when the time came for their purification according to the Law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord

Ask God to bring deep conviction of sin, spiritual brokenness, a holy fear of God and genuine repentance among His people.  

2 Corinthians 7:10Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but

Living as faithful disciples of Jesus requires making a lot of judgment calls.

We are called to “test everything” (1 Thess. 5:21), to “discern what is best” (Phil. 1:10). To see this process of discernment at work, consider the history of Lent—the traditional 40-day season (not counting Sundays) of preparation for Easter.
