The journey begins...
Lent is the forty day period before Easter that leads us to Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Day. The early Church set aside this time to prepare candidates for baptism and to encourage all Christian people to refresh their relationship with God - in prayer, charity and fasting. Today many are reclaiming the spiritual insights and benefits of using Lent properly. Lent is a gift, a snowfall in the soul, some days set aside for spiritual adventure. It is an invitation to discover more of God, the self, and the quality of our relationships and behaviour.
We invite you to share this time with us and to join us in our observance of this holy season.
Mark Oakley, Dean of Southwark
