Your spiritual journey… We know that it is not always easy to focus on our spiritual selves but our church community is made up of a group of families that are connected together by the desire to try! We worship and serve together; aware of the reality that faith is a life-long journey filled with many joys, blessings, doubts, challenges, successes, failures, and most importantly ~ a God who loves all.
Join us for the Lent & Easter Season! Our church community is a growing and vibrant group of individuals of all ages eager to welcome anyone who is seeking to explore their faith.
Join in from 5pm – 7pm on Tuesday February 9th at the Anglican Parish Hall for our Annual Pancake Supper. Dinner is pay-what-you-can and all are invited for some yummy comfort food!
We have three different opportunities for you to begin your Lenten Season:
10am – Ash Wednesday Service at St. James
4 – 6:50 – Ashes to Go Drop In (drop in anytime for a short prayer and imposition of ashes)
7pm – Ash Wednesday Service at St. James
Understanding the Season of Lent
The season of Lent recalls the forty days spent by Jesus in the desert fasting and praying. For Christians it is a season when we take time to consider our own feelings of personal wilderness and struggle. During Lent many people consider consciously reflecting on their faith by taking on a discipline such as increased prayer, study or worship. Others decide to remove something from their lives that’s absence may cause them to pause and consider their faith whenever it is being denied (such as coffee or dessert).
Lent is always an opportunity for anyone to consider whether they are being invited into a faith journey or being asked to strengthen or rekindle a journey that has already begun.
