Lenten Offerings at Trinity
As the liturgy for Ash Wednesday says, the season of Lent is traditionally marked by self-examination and repentance, prayer, fasting, self-denial, and the reading and meditating on God’s Word. Below you will find several opportunities offered at Trinity that will enrich your Lenten devotions and help you to keep a holy Lent.
The Way of Love: Practices for Jesus-Centered Life
The Way of Love is a way of life. More than a program or curriculum, it is a return to the ancient pathways and Rules of Life that followers of Jesus have observed for centuries. They knew the power of commitment to a core set of practices – Turn, Learn, Pray, Worship, Bless, Go, Rest – and the power of gathering in a small group where you find love and support for living into these commitments. If we hope to not only worship Jesus but to grow more like him and bear his redeeming love in the world, we can adopt a rule of life like the Way of Love and find a community with which to practice it.
Sunday March 10th @ 12:15 PM; Turn
Tuesday March 19th @ 6:30 PM; Pray
Tuesday March 26th @ 6:30 PM; Learn
Tuesday April 2nd @ 6:30 PM; Bless
Tuesday April 9th @ 6:30 PM; Worship
Sunday April 14th @ 12:15 PM; Go
All sessions will be held in the North Parish Hall. There will also be a sign-up for folks to bring either soup, bread, or fruit to share during the Tuesday evening sessions. You can learn more about The Way of Love by visiting
Confirmation / Reception / Christian Theology and Discipleship Classes
Each year around the time of Lent, Trinity offers a class designed especially for those seeking confirmation/reception/re-affirmation in the Episcopal Church. During these classes, participants study the basics of the Christian faith from the lens of the Anglican Tradition. Those who compete the class ordinarily go on to be confirmed at Christ Church Cathedral in the spring. Although these classes are intentionally crafted for those seeking confirmation, anyone who desires to deepen their Christian faith and learn more about the Anglican tradition is encouraged to attend.
This year, we will partner with St. Paul’s Episcopal and Christ Church Cathedral in offering these classes. The first session will be held on Saturday, March 9th at 10 AM at Trinity. Subsequent sessions will be scheduled at this first meeting.

Lenten Quiet Day for Contemplation and Meditation
As modern people, we are so often bombarded by the constant noises and distractions of life, and sometimes these noises and distractions can keep us from hearing the voice of God in the still and quiet space. On Saturday, April 9th, you are invited to participate in a morning of quiet and contemplation in Trinity’s nave. Several types of prayers practices will be taught and offered and you’ll have the chance to connect to God through a variety of different ways. The exact time of this quiet day is TBD, but it will take place in the morning hours.
Weekday Prayer Opportunities
Trinity holds prayer and worship services every day of the week, not just Sunday mornings. So if you are looking to add more structured and consistent prayer to your Lenten devotions, you are invited to stop by Trinity to participate in any or all of the following weekday services.
Mondays at 7:30 AM: Morning Prayer
Tuesdays at 7:30 AM: Holy Eucharist
Wednesdays at 7:30 AM: Morning Prayer
Wednesdays at 12:10 PM: Holy Eucharist
Wednesdays at 5:30 PM: Contemplative Prayer
Thursdays at 6:30 AM: Holy Eucharist
Fridays at 7:30 AM: Morning Prayer
Saturdays at 5:00 PM: The Table at Trinity (Celtic Eucharist during Lent)
On appointed Holy Days, the Eucharist is celebrated instead of Morning Prayer (except if the Holy Day falls on a Monday. In that case, it is transferred to Tuesday). You can find the Holy Day Mass schedule at www.trinitycwe.org/weekday-holy-day-schedule
