Lent Links
Lent Madness:
This is a fun page where all during Lent you get to vote on the saint of the day. Sign up for the email and get your ballot each day. Go to the website and read all about saints you know and many who you do not know. By the end of Lent one saint will win the Golden Halo as the top saint of the year.

SSJE resources: This page offers a program of reflection and prayer using the Way of Love (which we will be studying during Lent on Sunday mornings). The seven days are each divided with one of the seven areas and then each week features a different focus. There will be a video posted each Sunday. This is jointly sponsored by the Society of St. John the Evangelist and Virginia Theological Seminary.

The Way of Love: This is the link to the page on the national church about the Way of Love which will be the topic of Sunday morning A
