Overview & News
Throughout Lent, the Church offers suggestions about what to do in response to the news that Christ has died our death for us and risen victorious from the grave. It does this by focusing our attention on our three most important relationships – with God, with our neighbors, and within ourselves. These are the three traditional disciplines of prayer, almsgiving, and fasting.
For prayer, consider attending weekday services at Saint Thomas, in addition to Sunday worship, or consider saying the Daily Office on your own at home. You might also consider attending the Holy Hour on Wednesdays at 11am. For almsgiving, consider not only financial ways of helping those in need around you, but also volunteering, or resolving to practice more kindness, neighborliness and hospitality in your life. Finally, for fasting, consider following the example of the saints, and fasting from sin of all types, including the sins of pride, envy and deceit.
However you practice Lent, we invite you to do so with the Body of Christ at Saint Thomas Church.
