The Episcopal Church of the Holy Innocents 

LENT 2019

Episcopal Relief & Development celebrates the 15th anniversary of the organization’s Lenten Meditations with inspiring selections from previous years that highlight the incredible depth and insight provided by leaders from around The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. 


​We invite you to share in the 2019 Lenten email series from Episcopal Relief & Development. Each day during Lent you will receive a daily reflection, co-authored by a group of faith leaders from across the church. During this season of reflection on our Christian faith, their writings will enhance your spiritual journey as they both inspire and challenge you. Each daily meditation is presented in both English and Spanish. A link to the readings can be found at our website http://www.hiecbh.com/spirituality.html. These are inspiring selections from previous years that highlight the incredible depth and insight provided by leaders from around The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. “Over the past 15 years, we have worked with hundreds of brilliant writers,” said Sean McConnell, Senior Director of Engagement for Episcopal Relief & Development. “They each have brought spiritual depth and deeply personal reflections to these meditations, so the selection process was not easy. We could not possibly share all of the best meditations, but it is our hope that the 2019 offerings provide at least a sample of some of our inspiring writings from the past.” 


There is a lot of information including a Lenten Meditation Series on our Spirituality page


EPISCOPAL RELIEF & DEVELOPMENT SUNDAY


Congregations are invited to observe Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday on the first Sunday in Lent, or another convenient Sunday.

At the 2009 General Convention, Lent was officially designated as a time to encourage dioceses, congregations, and individuals to remember and support the life-saving work of Episcopal Relief & Development. 

We invite all Episcopalians to join together on Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday, and throughout the Lenten season, to pray for those living in need.

Please also consider dedicating a special offering in support of our mission to assist people impacted by poverty worldwide. All gifts from these events will be designated to Episcopal Relief & Development’s Global Needs Fund. This fund enables the agency to reach those most in need around the world.
