Join Holy Trinity during Lent for virtual opportunities for worship, prayer and study

7:30 p.m. Mondays: The Book of Proverbs

For Episcopalians, the Book of Proverbs is a collection of traditional cultural lessons: propositional statements, observational sayings, analogies, and ethics—structured as the teachings of a father to a son.

Starting Feb. 12, and on Mondays during Lent at 7:30 p.m., Father Mark offers a look at the Book of Proverbs and how the teachings apply to today's world.

Bring a Bible, pen and paper, and download the first week's overview.

Episcopalians still serve Jell-O in the proper liturgical color of the season and Episcopalians believe that it is OK to poke fun at themselves and never take themselves too seriously.

The prophet Joel, speaking on behalf of the Lord, declares in Scripture: “Return to me, with all your heart, with fasting, with weeping, and with mourning.”

This year, the prophet’s words have taken on new meaning. When we return to God with a penitent heart, we release our past, our sorrow, and all we carry with us and we experience anew God’s mercy and compassion.

This Lent, journey with Bread for the World members to God’s wellspring of mercy and compassion and deepen your faith in our God who yearns for a world without hunger.

Explore the traditional Lenten disciplines as relevant and powerful gifts for drawing closer to Christ at a time of disruption.

This free four-session online course led by Fr. Mark Michael explores the traditional Lenten disciplines of fasting, prayer, and almsgiving, at a time of profound change in the church and wider society.

Each session explores a traditional Lenten practice, tracing Scriptural foundations, and its place in the Anglican spiritual tradition.

Course participants are invited to engage in guided practice during the weeks between class sessions, and clergy are invited to bring members of their congregation for a congregational Lenten study.
