Lent

Christ Church has worship services and other events throughout the season of Lent. This is a time when Christians are invited "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" (BCP, p. 265). 

Traditionally, the forty days preceding Easter are a time of final preparation by adult candidates for baptism, as well as a time for those separated from the church to be restored to the Christian assembly.
