Keeping a Holy Lent

Lent is a season of preparation, 40 days in which the Church readies herself for the celebration of the Paschal mystery on Easter morning. The Prayer Book reminds us that since the first years of the Church, Lent has been marked by prayer, fasting, and meditation upon God’s Word. Historically, it was a time in which those who had recently converted to the faith prepared to receive the Sacrament of Holy Baptism. It was also a season in which those who had been separated from the body of the faithful because of notorious sin could be forgiven and reconciled to the Church. At All Saints’, we have many ways to keep this ancient, holy season. In addition to fasting from something, you might take something on – a new ministry, a Bible Study, or a worship service added to your weekly disciple. We invite you join us for any and all of the following Lenten observances:


Pray the Daily Office

The word “office” comes from the Latin word officio which means “duty.” As Episcopalians, we believe that it is our duty to say our prayers every day. Set aside a few moments to begin and end each day in prayer. You can pray the Daily Office with us in person in the Gray House Staff Chapel at 9:00 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday, or on our podcast at www.asecfw.org/podcast.


Experience Solemn Evensong

Evensong is part of the Daily Office; it is Evening Prayer sung! At this service, begin your week by listening to our incredible choir sing ancient hymns, steeping yourself in Holy Scripture, and entering prayerful meditation in a cloud of incense. Making Evensong part of your weekly rhythm will deepen your prayer life as you worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.


Pack Food for Hungry Children

Hundreds of children across Fort Worth depend on the bags of food packed by All Saints’ parishioners. This food sustains them through the weekends when they are without the free lunch provided by the schools. Give of your time this Lent to help us feed hungry children in our neighborhood. Join us on the Second Sunday in Lent, February 25 at 2:00 p.m. at our feeding ministry hub: 7616 Benbook Pkwy to pack food for hungry children in Fort Worth.
