Lent and Easter at St. Cyprian’s 2015

February 3rd, 2015 | Posted by admin in Uncategorized - (Comments Off)

This year we have a unique richness of opportunities to observe the Lenten season and the feast of Easter. There will be a full program of liturgical celebrations at St. Cyprian’s as well as opportunities to join with our neighbors of other faith communities in the annual United Lenten Devotions to fulfill Jesus’ exhortation – “that they all might be one.”

During Lent, we will be celebrating the Sunday Eucharist according to Rite I. Also, during Lent, we will have presentations of the film series produced by the Mission Institute on “Being Church.” St. Cyprian’s was one of the parishes featured in the series.

The United Lenten Devotions will once again be observed at different churches throughout the greater Boston area. A full schedule of the services, preachers, texts, locations and topics can be found here. Our schedule for St. Cyprian’s services during Lent and Easter can be found here. Please join us to observe Lent and celebrate Easter.
