Lent is an opportunity for us as a Christian Community to reflect, pray, fast, give alms and generally to reassess our faith in Jesus Christ as we prepare to enter the mysteries of Holy Week and joys of Easter.
This year, in addition to our link parish team of St. Stephens, Westminster and Holy Trinity, Manhattan, we delighted to be joined by St. Stephen’s neighbouring church and friends from St Barnabas, Pimlico. We look forward to this expanded community of reflection and fellowship as we get to know one another, ourselves, and God, this season of Lent.
Our Lent Booklet in conjunction with Holy Trinity New York and St Barnabas, is now available to download here. If you would like a paper copy, please get in touch with the Parish Office firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do circulate and encourage others to download to use as part of their Lenten devotion. Finally, if you are able, please mindfully consider donations or giving to the church for downloads or paper copies.
Every Wednesday in March at 7pm during Lent starting on 3rd March, together with St Barnabas & St Matthew, we will be hosting a Virtual Lent Supper Talk & Discussion. Meeting ID: 863 6454 4699 Passcode: SZ0ALB
