Great Lent: Going Deeper

Friday, March 08, 2019

The season of Lent is upon us! Have we noticed it yet? Lent is something that seems completely out of place in the world today, a holdover from some earlier time.

SPF50 MINISTRY

Praying together and reading Scripture together are pillars of a Christ- centered Orthodox Christian family. While families may desire to have these activities in their home, they may not be sure how to start. SPF50 intends to help our families bridge that gap. SPF stands for “Scripture, Prayer, Family” and is designed to equip families to read the Scriptures and pray together at home.

This will be an ongoing parish-centered program to help families have quality time with our Lord and with one another, both of which are hard to come by. 

SPF50 will start at the beginning of Great Lent 2020 with the Gospel of Mark.

Copies of SPF50’s first publication are available in each parish and on the SPF50 Web Page
