Countdown to Lent

Ash Wednesday is only days away. After the celebration of Shrove Tuesday or Mardi Gras, in which we eat pancakes, paczki, and other rich foods, we gather as a community to repent and refresh our desire to live in Christ. It is a holy day of prayer and fasting that is marked by the receiving of ashes on our foreheads to remind us of our mortality and need for God's mercy.

This year, Resurrection invites you to walk the Lenten Labyrinth. While life can be a maze at times, Lent offers us a labyrinth - a way to move towards Christ and open our hearts to God's mercy and love.

"You show me the path of life. In your presence, there is fullness of joy." Psalm 16:11

Using a labyrinth involves moving one's body and opening one's heart to Jesus. All you have to do is follow the path and you will find the center. A labyrinth experience involves preparing oneself at the beginning, following the single path to the center, spending reflective time in the center, following the same pathway out, and then going back into the world refreshed.

Resurrection has planned numerous opportunities for you to experience as you walk the path of the Lenten Labyrinth. Learn more about all the Lenten resources Resurrection will be provided at our dedicated webpage:
