The three pillars of Lent: Prayer, Fasting & Almsgiving

As you journey through the season of Lent, we pray that you find these resources helpful. You may wish to have the daily scripture readings sent to your phone for you to reflect on throughout the day, read scripture, or you may wish to read a daily reflection. You will find ideas and supports for these and more ideas in the links below.

Our Mission Statement is “to be transformed through an encounter with the Spirit of Truth and the Love of God” – how can Lent help us do this?
