From the Vicar
Dearly beloved in Christ,
We have going to enter a new season of Great Lent on February 14. Lent is an
important period of time in the Church’s Liturgical calendar. The practice of fasting is biblical.
Moses fasted in order to prepare for the great mission of receiving the law from God on
Mount Sinai. Elijah fasted and was taken to heaven without death on the chariot of fire. The
people of Nineveh fasted as the spirit of God convicted their hearts as they had sinned. Jonah
staying in the belly of the fish for 3 days was a time of fasting. Jesus fasted in the wilderness.
