NEW 2017 Lenten Reflections — Audio and Hard Copy

Lenten Podcast Archive

Lent is a time of prayer and renewal and an opportunity to refocus relationships with God.

This year, Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 1, and continues through Holy Saturday, April 15. An Easter reflection is also provided. CHA is offering its annual series of Lenten podcast reflections to enable you to reflect on the meaning of this season by downloading and listening to these weekly offerings.

For the 2017 Lenten series, CHA collaborated with Sr. Renee Yann, RSM, D.Min., a Sister of Mercy of the Mid-Atlantic Community, who graciously authored each of the reflections. Retired after more than 50 years in education and health care, she now ministers through spiritual writing and consulting. She can be followed on Twitter @ReneeYann
