In the days ahead, this page will serve as the hub of information from the Anglican Church of Canada for resources to help you celebrate the season of Lent through to Holy Week. As resources are added, we will post updates on Facebook and Twitter.

Council of the North
The Council of the North is pleased to offer this Lenten liturgical resource. This resource consists of a weekly bulletin insert, featuring a unique story of ministry, as well as a corresponding prayer tied to the readings for the week, and is designed to be used throughout the Lenten season.
Your parish may choose to simply have a weekly focus on the Council of the North throughout Lent, using these inserts. Or, you might use them each week but also have a special Council of the North Sunday during which you feature these and other resources, including our video.

Society of St. John the Evangelist
Lent season videos and workbook
This year the Brothers’ Lenten series will focus on God as the Chief Gardener of our souls and use a tool from monastic spirituality called a ‘Rule of Life’ to explore and cultivate our relationships with God, Self, Others, and Creation. Just as stakes and lattices nurture the growth of young plants, so too can spiritual disciplines support the flourishing of our whole being.
