The Lenten season is a time of spiritual reflection and renewal.
The season begins on Ash Wednesday and lasts for 40 days, representing the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the wilderness.
Protestants and Catholics have come together in various houses of worship throughout the Greater Lawrence area to worship and to reflect in preparation for the resurrection of Christ on Easter Sunday.
Worship begins each Wednesday at Noon and is followed by a light luncheon in the church fellowship hall.
A listing of the host churches and homilists is published annually.

lift up my eyes to the hills—
from where will my help come?
My help comes from the Lord,Psalm 121:1-2

It is a day when people of all faiths are asked to pray for our nation. It is a day that transcends differences, bringing together citizens from all backgrounds.
