The season of Lent

The word “Lent” is derived from an old Anglo-Saxon word, “Lencten,” for spring. In the Christian year, Lent is the forty-day period of prayer and spiritual self-examination that helps prepare us for the festival of the Resurrection, or Easter. This forty-day period does not include Sundays, as these “Lord’s Days” are meant to be viewed as weekly celebrations of the resurrection. The forty-day period reflects the time Jesus spent in the wilderness fasting and being tested after his baptism. 

Trinity offers the following special services during the season of Lent.
