The invitation of Lent to repent and return to the Lord is the same every year, but we come to this invitation this year in the wake of the overlapping pandemics of COVID-19, racism, climate change and disinformation. How shall we answer the ancient invitation faithfully in this particular season of our common life? This Lent, the annual preaching series at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston aims to lift up the voices of leaders who are fairly new to the greater Boston area or who have come to see the area anew.
The series takes place online via Zoom on Thursdays, Feb. 18-March 25, at 12 p.m., featuring a brief service of noonday prayer with guest sermon, followed by conversation with the preacher and other attendees.
All are welcome and registration is required here.
