The Archbishop of York, John Sentamu launches LentPilgrim and EasterPilgrim
We’re delighted to be sharing details with you about the Church of England’s 2019 Lent and Easter campaigns, LentPilgrim and EasterPilgrim. The resources will take followers from the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday, through to Holy Week with the LentPilgrim reflections, and on from Easter Day to Ascension Day with EasterPilgrim reflections.
These campaigns build on the success of last year’s Lent campaign, #LiveLent, which reached 3.54 million on social media, with 95 per cent of people who took the daily reflections saying they found them helpful, very helpful or extremely helpful in bringing them closer to God.
The LentPilgrim app can help you:
- Find a few minutes each day of Lent and Easter to pause and reflect
- Read or listen to 40 days of reflections, written by Steven Croft (free registration required)
- Locate Lent and Easter services and events near you via the Church of England’s church-finder, AChurchNearYou.com.
