Lent 2022

Lent is a time of preparation. It is a season of longing and anticipation as we prepare our hearts for the celebration of Easter. The forty days of Lent can be a time of self-denial and setting our hearts and minds on Christ: his life, death, and resurrection.

Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday confronts us with a stark reminder of our mortality and our sinfulness. To heed this call is not to despair, but to respond with repentance and to trust a merciful God. It’s a call to depend on and rest in the work of Christ. On Ash Wednesday, we begin the 40 day season of Lent. The journey begins with us facing our sin as we spend an evening in prayerful repentance and confession and hope-filled worship.

Should I Observe Ash Wednesday and Lent?

As a young and growing church, Veritas is made up of members from a wide spectrum of church back grounds. Some grew up in traditional denominations, others have always gone to contemporary churches, while for many more Veritas is your first church home. The diversity of all these backgrounds and experiences can make how we observe church tradition challenging both individually and corporately. One tradition we are asked about is the church calendar and how we observe Ash Wednesday and Lent.
