Lent at St George's Cathedral

Lent is the season of preparation for the celebration of the Resurrection, the most important celebration of the Christian year. It is marked by self-examination, spiritual discipline, and the great liturgies of the Church.

istock_000000300922webOn Ash Wednesday (14 February) the season begins with 8.15am and 10.30am Eucharists with Imposition of Ashes, then at 6.30pm there is a Choral Eucharist also with Imposition of Ashes. Music is sung by members of the Cathedral Consort and includes Miserere (Allegri), Mass for Four Voices (Byrd) and Ubi Caritas (Duruflé).

Daily in Lent the Cathedral clergy and lay people pray the traditional daily ‘offices’ of morning and evening prayer on weekdays, surrounding the working day with prayer. This is a good spiritual discipline to take up for Lent.

On selected Wednesdays in Lent the Cathedral’s Centre for Spirituality presents:

14 February - 9.30am-2pm: “They saw The Child”

28 February - 9.30am-11.30am: Spirituality and Tai Chi

14 March - 9.30am-2pm: “You will bear a Son”
