The Anglican Church of Canada has created a web page with a wide range of resources to help Canadian Anglicans observe Lent, the 40-day period leading up to Easter.
The offerings include a Lenten Bible study prepared by the suffragan bishop of the diocese of Huron, Terry Dance, and Lenten reflections “that encourage thought and action on issues of food security,” prepared by the Rev. Elizabeth Steeves (diocese of Niagara) for the Primate’s World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF).
Anglicans wishing to relate Lent with contemporary life can do so with “Spend Lent with Mark,” prepared by the diocese of Niagara. Here, about 30 contributors share “daily commentaries and probing questions” using the Gospel of Mark as a springboard for exploring the teachings of Jesus.
The web page also includes liturgical texts for trial use, including propers for Ash Wednesday to Palm/Passion Sunday. The texts have been released for trial use and feedback by the liturgy task force of General Synod’s faith, worship and ministry committee.
