Prayer in Troubled Times: Lent—Again, or Still With Us?

How might we understand the pandemic in light of the meaning of Lent and Easter? How might Lent and Easter take on new meaning this year as a result of the pandemic? You are invited to join us for two 20-minute online worship services that will include spoken and sung prayers, scripture, poetry, and intercessions. There is no fee and no limit on number of participants.

Ever since mid-Lent of 2020, people around the world have been unintentionally united in a Lenten experience precipitated by the coronavirus. We have abstained from coming together for worship services, movies, sports events, concerts, and family gatherings—even weddings and funerals. If Lent is a time of self-denial, what more could we possibly give up? This year, God may be inviting us to a different kind of Lent: to go deeper rather than wider. Our call may be to accept a reality we did not choose, to do so not in a spirit of grim determination or self-pity, but in a spirit of trust and exploration, asking the Big Questions.

This worship service will be posted on our YouTube channel on Sunday, February 21, at 7 p.m.

Facilitator: Delores Dufner, OSB
