lent and Easter

Lent is traditionally the time when we prepare for the great feast of Easter. This year we are offering many opportunities as we explore the Lenten journey. We will hear faith stories from people in the city; explore the Cross through a series of meditations; and explore different ways of praying together. Everyone is welcome.
