HELP ALL YEAR LONG… ESPECIALLY AT LENT!

Hi, I’m Alice McFarlane.  We have a lot to work on when Lent arrives — we have lost two of our cousins and we are coping as best we can with Jane’s difficulties.  As far back as I can remember, St. Stephen’s has always been a very big help during the Lenten season.  We’ve had workshops, prayer and meditation sessions, prayers for us, inspirational books, et cetera, and the clergy and lay leaders have always been very helpful, too.  I think it is a very special time in the life of our wonderful church!  And I always feel better and more cheerful at the end than I did at the start!
