The season of Lent has begun. Lent is a season of reflection and repentance in preparation for the joys of Easter. Join us as we make the journey together.

Ash Wednesday (February 14) was the beginning of Lent. On subsequent Wednesdays during Lent, churches in the Marple-Newtown area will hold community Midweek Lenten Gatherings: with dinner at 6:00 PM and worship at 7:00 PM. St Mark's United Methodist Church (2220 S Sproul Rd, Broomall) will host the Midweek Lenten Gathering on February 28.

This year, the season of Lent began on February 14. Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday, March 25. Maundy Thursday is March 29, and Good Friday is March 30. We celebrate Easter Sunday on April 1.
