LENT AT ST MARY'S
Reflections on the living in the Wilderness
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, and is the period of six weeks (40 days not including Sundays) leading up to Easter. Lent is observed as a time of self reflection and growth through turning to God (Being Penitent). Our Lent course this year will consist of a series of Lent reflection services at different churches in the Deanery culminating in a joint Holy Communion in St Mary's Monkseaton o Saturday 23rd March at 11.30am followed by a shared/bring your own lunch.
In Lent we are encouraged to pray more, and during the pandemic, praying for one another is as important as ever. Click below to view our dedicated prayer page where you will find resources to help you to pray.
