This season of Lent begins with Ash Wednesday on Feb. 22 and ends on Saturday, April 8.
Easter Sunday is April 9, 2023. Lent is a season of spiritual gardening, of inviting God to unearth in us what lies fallow, what needs to be tended, and what needs to die for new life to emerge. This Lent, we will explore biblical images of the table that will draw us closer to God, challenge us to expand the hospitality of God’s table to more, welcome the marginalized and oppressed, and move us toward the joy of the Resurrection.
