Observing Lent, Holy Week and Easter
at the Church of Saint Clement
An Invitation to the Observance of a Holy Lent:
Dear People of God: From the early days of our faith, Christians have observed the remembrance of Christ’s passion and resurrection with great reverence. It became the custom to prepare for that observance by a season of prayer and fasting, and the reconciliation of those who had been separated from the community of faith. By keeping the season of Lent, we take to heart God’s call to repentance and the assurance of forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel, and practice in our daily lives the work of reconciliation. I invite you, therefore, 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. To make a right beginning to this season it is appropriate to receive the mark of ashes as a reminder of our mortal nature and of God’s invitation to receive Christ’s redeeming work.

St. Clement's Lenten Series 2020:
Studies in Prayer by Hailey Jacobsen, Seminarian
Prayer can take many forms – quiet and contemplative, active and noisy, and everything in between. Come to our Lenten Forum Series as we explore the many forms of prayer that are present within St. Clement and try out some different forms of prayer together. Seminarian, Hailey Jacobsen, will be leading this eye-opening series each Sunday of Lent at 9:00 AM (between the 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM services) in MR Hall.
We will begin Sunday, March 1st by asking the questions "What is Prayer?" Please consider joining us for these meaningful and reflective sessions, which focus on aspects of prayer life. Topics include: Ignatian meditation, prayer in common life, centering prayer and spiritual direction. We look forward to seeing - and praying with - you!
