Welcome to Lent Online! Each Tuesday afternoon you will find a new Lenten Devotion posted here.  Together we will explore a different prayer practice each week.  We invite you to make use of it when and where your schedule permits…spread it out through the week, select one day to make time to experience the entire devotion, or even repeat it several times as you desire.

–Your Lent Online partners,

Rev. Jennifer Barchi, Rev. Ron Hankins, Rev. Deborah McEachran
