ORDINARY TIME LEADING INTO LENT
Leaving Epiphany Season behind, we enter a period of ‘Ordinary time’ leading to Ash Wednesday on 6 March. Then we bring ourselves before God in penitence for all that is amiss in our lives. We resolve to prepare ourselves prayerfully and sacrificially to follow Christ through Lent and the events of Holy Week, until we experience the joy of Easter.
It is also a time for preparing our Annual Report and gathering for the Annual Parochial Church Meeting. In this way, we review our service to God in worship and outreach as a charitable foundation and affirm our vision for the coming year.
