Lent is a period of repentance, prayer and reflection that is accompanied by individual and churchwide special devotions. Some people choose to fast on certain days during Lent. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends with the Great Vigil of Easter.
Stations of the Cross
The Stations of the Cross is a special devotion, which we do on Fridays in Lent, which commemorates the journey of Jesus from his condemnation by Pilate to his crucifixion, death and burial. Through imagining ourselves walking with Jesus and witnessing his terrible suffering and death, we remember that our salvation came at great cost to Jesus. Thanks be to God in Jesus Christ!
On Good Friday, we pause to remember Jesus' ultimate sacrifice on the cross. Many people fast on this day, and we hold a special liturgy of remembrance.
Faith is more than what happens on Sunday mornings. It's a part of who we are, inside and out. At All Saints' Episcopal Church, we strive to share the joy of the gospels daily, and to live lives that embody the spirit of Christ. We do this with full confidence that God forgives us when we fall short.
All Saints' Episcopal Church
We are a family-friendly Eucharistic community of Christians who center our worship of God through prayer, song and the celebration of Christ's gift of the Holy Eucharist. Families are encouraged to bring children to the main worship service. Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me." The presence (and sound) of children in the worship service is a source of great joy to us, as to the Lord.
We are an inclusive church that welcomes all people.
