The Cross and the Catechism — Lent and Easter 2010

The Cross and the Catechism – Lent/Easter at St. Mark

Lent wasn’t always mainly about commemorating the Passion of our Lord.  It began as the last dash to confirmation for those preparing for Baptism.  In later years, when Christianity became the dominant religion and there were less adult converts, the focus of Lent shifted to the Passion of Christ.

This year, we blend those themes.  Our Lent, Holy Week, and Easter services will review the Passion and Easter accounts, but also show how Luther’s Small Catechism leads inevitably to the cross of Christ!

Midweek services are on Wednesdays, 6:30 pm.  Suppers precede all services (beginning at 5:30 pm) until Holy Week.
