Lenten Email Meditations (plus other resources from the wider church)

Kitty Kawecki, Director of Resources & Training

Once again the Episcopal Diocese of Newark will offer daily meditations during the season of Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday, March 5, 2014. Each day you will receive a scripture reading, a reflection on that reading and a short prayer.

Please consider taking time to slow down, wait, pray and reflect on the hope and possibilities that the Resurrection offers us.

Lenten resources from SSJE

Starting Ash Wednesday, March 5 receive short, daily videos from the Brothers of SSJE (Society of St. John the Evangelist in Cambridge, MA) that delve deeply into the gospel that shapes their community life. John's message of love can unlock our hearts and transform our lives.

The Brothers of SSJE also publish the popular Brother, Give Us a Word daily meditation.

Subscribe to the Lenten series with your email. You will receive an introductory email and the videos will start March 5.
