Observing Lent

  • Lent begins on Wednesday, February 26 with the liturgies of Ash Wednesday.  Services will be held at Noon (Imposition of Ashes & Holy Eucharist) and 7pm (Imposition of Ashes – no Holy Eucharist).  A soup luncheon in Jeppson Hall will follow the Noon liturgy.


  • Volunteers are needed on Sunday, February 23 to help prepare the Nave for Ash Wednesday services.  This year, during the liturgies on Ash Wednesday (2/23), Maundy Thursday (4/9), and Good Friday (4/10), the Nave will be arranged in a way that enables the assembly to gather around the central signs of faith we observe on those days:  Ash Wednesday – imposition of ashes as a sign of our frailty and mortality; Maundy Thursday – foot washing as a sign of our call to love and serve; and Good Friday –  adoration of the cross as a sign of life and salvation.


  • Daily Lenten Devotional written by the Trinity ministry Staff. Daily reflections by Pastor Nathan, Cantor Mark, and Jena Hill will be posted on the Trinity website, Trinity Social Media, and be emailed to those who subscribe to receiving the daily emails. Watch for more information on how you can participate.


  • Wednesday Evening Prayer at 6:00 p.m. in Christ Chapel. During Lent, midweek Wednesday Eucharist in the Nave will yield to Evening Prayer in Christ Chapel. Ministry Staff and others will reflect on the Gospel reading assigned for each Wednesday in light of the question “What does it mean to be baptized?” A simple meal of soup will follow in the Fellowship Hall.


  • Sundays at 11:45 a.m. – St. Matthew Passion. Cantor Mark invites you to join him in the Trinity Library to study the Passion of Christ as presented in the Gospel of St. Matthew in preparation for the Trinity Choir presenting J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion on Palm Sunday. Participants will engage biblically, theologically, and musically around the telling of the story of Christ’s passion.


  • The Three Days (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil – April 9-11). If you are interested in assisting in the liturgies of The Three Days, please speak with Pastor Nathan, Cantor Mark, and Jena Hill.  There will be plenty of opportunities to assist in worship on those important days.
