2017 Annual Meeting Program: Vestry Members, Budget and updates.
Epiphany, stemming from the Greek word that means “showing forth,” is when the Church traditionally commemorates the visitation of the Magi. Anciently, this was actually the early Church’s celebration of the birth of Jesus, and the stories from scripture and language in our prayers and hymns still preserves some sense of their overlapping. The season of Epiphany lasts until Ash Wednesday, which marks the beginning of Lent. During Epiphany the church is dressed in green, and hymns and readings emphasize the themes of revelation.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday (March 1: services 7am, noon, 7pm) and continues until Holy Saturday (the day before Easter Sunday: April 15). The season of Lent lasts for forty days (not counting Sundays), and is characterized by a focus on prayer, simplification, and an attention to the parts of our life (and the world) that are broken and in need of repair. The word “Lent” is related to the English word “length” because the season occurs during the time of year when the days lengthen. Lent is a season of truth-telling and hopefulness for a brighter day. In Lent the church and clergy are vested in purple garments.
