Lent Begins as We Examine Our Life with God

February 14th’s Ash Wednesday marked the beginning of our Lenten season, a time for introspection when we are asked to reflect on our spiritual practice. For many over the years, Lent has changed from “giving something up” to “taking something on.”

In her Lenten video message, Bishop Phyllis Spiegel says that whether we make a personal choice to give up an indulgence, or take on a form of consistent assistance, aid, or advocacy, we must ask ourselves: what are the challenges that prevent us from this action outside of the Lenten season?

We hope the season of Lent brings deeper meaning to your spiritual connection with Christ. Many congregations will be holding special services or events in our preparations for Holy Week and the Resurrection of Christ. Follow our social media or sign up for our newsletter to see a collection of updates throughout the season.

Prayer for Our Churches' Annual Meetings

Most of our churches will have their annual meetings this month. They will each elect Vestry and Bishop’s Committees, delegates to Diocesan Convention, and conduct various other business matters.

The Book of Common Prayer for this Almighty and everliving God,
source of all wisdom and understanding,
be present with those who take counsel 
for the renewal and mission of your Church.

Teach us in all things to seek first your honor and glory. Guide us to perceive what is right,
and grant us both the courage to
pursue it and the grace to accomplish it; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Amen.

The Episcopal Church in Utah

Bishop Daniel S. Tuttle formally started the Episcopal Church in Utah with his arrival in Salt Lake City on July 2, 1867. The Church became known for its social justice ministry with the creation of Utah’s first school system for children of all religions. Bishop Tuttle also started St. Mark’s Hospital to serve the thousands of miners who had no other health care options. He tirelessly traveled by stage and horseback to establish churches from Montana to Arizona.
