Lenten Quiet Day 2023
Lenten Quiet Day is a reflective day of prayer, meditation and contemplation. This day is central to St. Martin’s Lent traditions and is sponsored by St. Martin’s Chapter of OSL.
Into the Desert
Saturday, March 4, 2023
Parish Life Center
The theme of the 2023 Lenten Quiet Day is “Into the Desert.” The image of the desert reminds one not only of Jesus’ entry into the wilderness at the beginning of His Earthly ministry but also the spiritual dryness that Christians sometimes encounter in their spiritual journeys. Time in the desert forces us to face the truth about ourselves and the truth about God.
The season of Lent usually calls us to wrestle with our complacency in our walk with Christ, forcing us to respond to a renewed call to new life amid periods of aridness.
St. Martin’s Clergy will provide meditations on three themes of the desert. In between these meditations, there will be a quiet time for journaling, prayer or walking through the grounds of St. Martin’s. Coffee and pastries will be available, and the Quiet Day will end with Noonday Prayer.
Please dress comfortably and bring a Bible and journal. Come and be present to God as you begin your “Holy Lent.”
