Offerings for Lent
Considered by many to be the most meaningful season of the church year, Lent invites Christians to renew the practice of their faith through fasting, prayer, and almsgiving for the good of body, soul, and neighbor.  Fr. Stuart has invited our entire parish into a time of focused prayer for Lent this year, using the Benedictine spiritual framework as our continued spiritual growth as Grace Church.  Noted on our website are other offerings for the Lenten season to aid parishioners in the keeping of the holy season and in the renewal of faith in preparation for Easter.
