Special Services of Lent and Holy Week
The season is marked with special services and liturgies, beginning with Ash Wednesday and concluding with the Easter Sunday. The liturgies are listed here.
Lent Madness! Each year, during Lent, members of St. Matthias' participate in Forward Movement's fun, engaging way for people to learn about the men and women comprising the Church’s Calendar of Saints. Members fill out brackets prior to Ash Wednesday, and give a small donation that goes into a common fund. They then compete for the right to direct the use of those donations for a charity of their choosing!
Lent Madness was the brain child of the Rev. Tim Schenck, an Episcopal Priest, in Hingam, MA. In 2010 Tim came up with this unique Lenten devotion, combining his love of sports with his passion for the lives of the saints. He was joined by the Rev. Scott Gunn (Executive Director of Forward Movement) and together they have continued to offer this unique, and fun, way of learning about the lives of those special people who we call Saints.
