In the early church, the season of Lent was not only a time of repentance and being rejoined to the Body of Christ; it was also the season in which the final preparations were being made by persons wishing to be baptized. In that spirit, Church of the Epiphany is proud to offer Episcopal Beliefs & Practices on the Sundays in Lent.
