"Thrust out a little from the land," (Luke 5:3) and founded upon a rock, may it ever point the way to Heaven and allure men and attract them, win them and fit them and train them for the Temple that is not made with hands." -- Annie Clarkson, 1896.

  • What is Lent?

    Early Christians observed "a season of penitence and fasting" in preparation for the Paschal feast, or Pascha.The season now known as Lent (from an Old English word meaning "spring," the time of lengthening days) has a long history. Originally, in places where Pascha was celebrated on a Sunday, the Paschal feast followed a fast of up to two days. In the third century this fast was lengthened to six days. Eventually this fast became attached to, or overlapped, another fast of forty days, in imitation of Christ's fasting in the wilderness. The forty-day fast was especially important for converts to the faith who were preparing for baptism, and for those guilty of notorious sins who were being restored to the Christian assembly. In the western church the forty days of Lent extend from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday, omitting Sundays. The last three days of Lent are the sacred Triduum of Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. Today Lent has reacquired its significance as the final preparation of adult candidates for baptism. Joining with them, all Christians are invited "to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God's holy Word"

  • Lenten Study

    At Trinity we are going to begin a DVD study and discussion based on Dallas Willard's book, The Divine Conspiracy.  (Dallas Willard was a renowned teacher, writer and one of this century's most brilliant Christian thinkers.) The book looks at Jesus' teachings from the Sermon on the Mount bringing them to life in a fresh, relevant way, calling us into an authentic faith, and offering a practical plan by which we can answer that call. 

    Starting the week of 10th March there will be two different study groups, one on a Tuesday afternoon at 12:30 p.m. and one at 7:00 p.m. on a Thursday night.

  • Stations of the Cross

    Starting, March 15th, through to April 12th, we will be offering the opportunity for parishioners to follow the Stations of the Cross at 9:00 a.m. on Fridays through Lent.  Copies of 'The Way of the Cross' booklet will be on the piano and Betsy Travis and Marsha Colt will lead the meditations.

    On Good Friday, itself, (April 19th)  there will be a Stations of the Cross with Homily service at 12:00 noon
