Lent and Easter Season 2018

We invite you to join us for the 40 days of Lent starting with Ash Wednesday services on February 14th. We will hold two services, at noon and at 6pm.

Holy Week services will be:

Palm Sunday, March 25: one service at 10am

Maundy Thursday, March 29: one service at 6pm

Good Friday, March 30: two services at noon and 6pm

Easter Sunday, April 1: once service at 10am

Our main supporting activity for Lent is “Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John.” You are invited to join Father Steve, our Family Ministry Director Diane Wright, fellow parishioners and Episcopalians around the globe in a six-week journey and reflection on the Gospel according to John. With videos from the monks at the Society of St. John the Evangelist (SSJE) and a beautiful prayer journal compiled by SSJE and the Center for the Ministry of Teaching at Virginia Theological Seminary, we will deepen our relationship with God during this Holy season. If you would like to join us, please contact Diane (familyministry@standrewsarlington.org) for additional information and resources, including a prayer journal.
