“Pray Then in this Way…” Lent 2021

Opportunities for Lent 2021

When asked to teach his disciples to pray, Jesus said, “pray then in this way,” teaching them what we have come to know as the Lord’s prayer. It is a short prayer, and a prayer that summarizes the whole of the gospel. Our Lenten journey with the Lord’s prayer will give us the opportunity to learn from Jesus and to follow in the way of God. It is an invitation to learn, pray, and put our faith into action. Join us this season as we journey from the ashes of mourning to the cross, and from there to the empty tomb.
