Lent (weekday services)

The season of Lent is a 40-day season of preparation for Holy Week, when Christians enter into the last week of Christ's life on earth before his Resurrection on Easter Sunday. During this season we fast together, pray together, frequent Holy Communion, and confess our sins. Traditionally, this is also a time of preparation for "catechumens" (those seeking to become Christians) to receive baptism on Easter, so our fasting is also an expression of solidarity with men and women around the world who are preparing to enter the covenant family of God's Holy Church. During Lent, extra services are held every Wednesday evening at 7:30pm following our community Soup Suppers at 6:30pm-- ALL ARE WELCOME!

Ash Wednesday (Soup Supper and The Service of Ashes)

"Remember, oh man, that thou art but dust and to dust thou shalt return." These words, which we hear at the climax of the Ash Wednesday service remind us of the frailty of our human condition, and it revives within us a sober perspective on the purpose of our life on this side of eternity. We are to practice repentance, to love God with all of our hearts, and love our neighbors as ourselves in the sure and certain hope that, though we all must depart this life, we might rest in sure and certain hope of the Resurrection. We warmly invite all to join us as we commence the season of Lent and journey together to the Death and Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Soup Dinner begins at 6:30pm and the Ash Wednesday service follows at 7:30pm.

Advent 2017

  • St Andrew's Anglican Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The Advent Season, sometimes referred to as the "Winter Lent," is a time of fasting and prayer in preparation for Christmastide, when we celebrate the great mystery of Christ's Incarnation. During Advent, we try to relive the longing of Israel as she awaited the coming of a Savior, but we also meditate upon the Second Advent of Christ, when He will come again to judge the living and the dead. Come join St Andrew's during this holy season of preparation!
