Lenten Prayer Opportunities 2023

This year’s theme centers around hope and its symbol, the anchor. Lent is a time for prayer, giving to the poor, and service to others.

This Lent we explore various aspects of our life and take a closer, more inward look at the hope we foster in ourselves and the world around us, as well as hope in the future of the Church. Lent is a perfect time to reevaluate our spiritual lives through prayer and spiritual growth.

We are asked not simply to give up the same things we did last year or repeat the same prayer disciplines of the past. We are asked to seek out new ways to pray, to find hope, and connect with God. We are asked to find new ways of helping and more importantly connecting with the poor. We are asked to find new ways to serve others, giving them hope.

This Lenten season St. Anthony on the Lake offers many ways to not only find hope, but to give hope to others.

In addition to our regularly scheduled daily Masses and weekly devotions, we offer the following opportunities for prayer, reconciliation and celebration.
