12th March 2023 - Third Sunday in Lent

Together Sharing Christ’s Love

Welcome to:

Redeemer, Macalister

St Mark’s, Dalby

Liturgical Colour: Violet

First Sunday in Lent: What is Lent?

Many Christians have heard of Lent, but do all know what it means? According to Merriam-Webster, Lent means "the 40 weekdays from Ash Wednesday to Easter as a period of penitence and fasting."

Lent begins each year on Ash Wednesday, 46 days before Easter Sunday.

Lent is meant to be a time of repentance. That’s not a feeling of shame but an awareness that sin separates us from God and of what it cost Him to be reunited with us.

LCAQD Lutheran Services Lenten appeal 2022:

Lenten Services leaflets available from the narthex.

Our focus text for the 2023 appeal is: ‘Even to your old age I am he, even when you turn grey I will carry you.' (Isaiah 46:4a)

This text reminds us of God's loving care throughout life's ups and downs. Lutheran Services is one way that we as LCAQD put our faith in God's loving care into action. Our appeal this year will support the ongoing work of Hospital Chaplaincy and Mary and Martha’s domestic violence refuge.
