The Rev’d. Canon Basil Tynes , Rector of St. Barnabas Anglican Church, and the Rev’d. Mark Fox, Chaplain at St. John’s College, will be the preachers, and each night will focus on a particular aspect of the theme.
On Sunday night the topic will be”The God who keeps on Giving and the Heirs who respond Generously”.
On Monday evening the topic will focus on”Developing the Right Attitude in Giving”.
On Tuesday evening the topic will focus on”M to the Third power”.
Lent is the 40-day period in the Christian liturgical calendar from Ash Wednesday to Easter. During this period it is customary for Christians to include fasting, abstinence, and meditation, as a way of getting closer to God. Lent is also the period leading up to Easter.
At special Ash Wednesday services, Christians are marked with ashes on the forehead, as a sign of mourning and repentance.
The Lenten Mission services will begin at 7:00 nightly. Anglicans and the general public are invited to attend.
