Lenten Message from Bishop Duncan

The 40 Days of Lent    

Dear Sisters in Christ,       

We are about to enter the Season of Lent. We prepare not only for Holy Week and the Easter celebration, but also for deepening our personal spirituality. I have over many years observed this time with prayer, fasting and good works in their many forms and outcomes. In my journey I have found this helpful in the physicality of focusing on not just “good works” but also deepening the areas of where I need to grow. It is not always easy. I am an extrovert. The Pandemic forces all of us to isolate for appropriate reasons.      

Yet, how I safely reach out to and with others is important. I have watched committed people spend hours trying to get Covid vaccine appointments for others and themselves without success.       

That time is not wasted or uselessly spent; it is worth the time and effort when the appointment is made and the “jab” is given! They are acts of love.       
As we come to Ash Wednesday we might ask ourselves “How can I observe a Holy Lent and spread the Gospel with acts of kindness?”     
May God bless all in the work we do and the lives we live.     

In His Holy Name,  
Bishop Duncan
