Lent is a time to examine our hearts and minds and behavior
to acknowledge our human frailty and sinfulness; and to receive God's forgiveness with joy and hope. Many Christians use this time to take on personal disciplines of extra prayer, fasting (from meat, sweets, Facebook, credit cards, alcohol, etc.), and giving of time and money to those in need. Private confessions with the parish clergy are also available by appointment as needed.
Our Sunday worship during Lent is a bit more stripped-down than during the rest of the year. It is more basic, and helps us to be aware of who we are, what is really going on with us, and who God is. We also use a version of our worship service (Rite I) with language that connects us back to the original roots of our Anglican tradition. All of our Lenten practices prepare us to celebrate Christ's resurrection on Easter Day with joy, and with the gladness of New Creation becoming reality in our lives.
You are invited to make this Lenten journey with us.
Lenten Events &Opportunities
Lenten Prayer Pilgrimage - On the interior walls of the Church are twelve Lent/Easter pictures. Pick up a Pilgrimage Brochure and baptismal shell from the basket in the Narthex; follow from one picture to another with the Bible passages, prayers, or silent contemplation. You are invited to do this whenever the Church is open.
Holy Week Concert - Tuesday, March 27 at 7 pm. All Saints’ is pleased to host The Epworth Youth Choir of the First United Methodist Church of Cuyahoga Falls, OH on their spring choir tour.
This group of young people, grades 7-12, provide the music for their church every week. They are involved in mission projects in the local community and abroad.
This year's tour music features traditional choral music, both new and old, and also includes a Holy Week musical written by their director, H. Dean Wagner, "Keeping Vigil with Jesus." This short musical traces the events of Holy Week, culminating in Good Friday and God's infinite love for each of us. This concert will appeal to both adults and children. The performances free and open to the public, held in All Saints' Church.

A Prayer for All Saints' for 2018
Lord Jesus, you call us to work, pray, and give for the good of the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven: assist us with the grace of your Holy Spirit to live your goodness, justice, peace, and love in our lives, in our parish, in our neighborhoods, and in God’s world, so that heaven may become more real in this life. We ask this to God’s glory, and in the strength of your holy Name. Amen.
