More About Lent and Holy Week at St. Matthew's
Lenten listening is a time for challenge and calls from God for us to self-examine and repent, to change our ways. The scriptures give flesh to the idea that God loves us as we are and simultaneously seeks to transform us, with our wills engaged in that process, into whom we are called to be. Lent is a clear reminder of that dual assurance of God’s presence and purpose in our lives.Click here for details about Lent at St. Matt's.
