Lenten Studies 2020

During the Season of Lent, all members of the Cathedral congregation are encouraged to take part in small group study or reflection.

The 40 days of Lent are an excellent time to take on a discipline of deeper reflection on the Christian life, growing personally in discipleship as well as helping us grow as a community of Christian faith in the world.
