Lent at St. Thomas

Dear St Thomas family,

As Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, there are a couple of resources attached to this post which you may like to use over the next few weeks. There is a prayer walk for Ash Wednesday, and a weekly reflection booklet.

If you’re a phone/tablet user I also recommend downloading the ‘Live Lent’ app which has daily reflections.

Please also use this time to remember and support our Link Diocese of Kagera. The Bishops’ Lent challenge to help us fundraise and pray for Kagera is to the left.

On Ash Wednesday I will do a livestreamed Eucharist from St Thomas’, and I also recommend this Ash Wednesday service from Cantus Firmus & the Cathedral, which is beautifully put together.  https://www.cantusfirmus.org.uk/resources/ash-wednesday-service.html

Every blessing as we get ready to enter the season of Lent together,

Cat
