A Lenten Examination of Conscience: The Southwell Litany

The Southwell Litany was composed by George Ridding, first bishop of Southwell, England (Church of England). As Lent is a time of prayer and repentance, this litany is most helpful for self-reflection and examination as one enters their prayer time.


From moral weakness, from hesitation, from fear of men and dread of responsibility; strengthen us with courage to speak the truth in love and self-control; and alike from the weakness of hasty violence and from the weakness of moral cowardice: Save us and help us, O Lord.

From weakness of judgment, from the indecision that can make no choice and from the irresolution that carries no choice into action; Strengthen our eyes to see and our wills to choose the right; And from losing opportunities to serve you, and from perplexing ourselves and others with uncertainties: Save us and help us, O Lord.

Stations of the Cross Offered Every Friday Evening at 6PM February 16-March 29, 2024

Christ the King Church is pleased to offer The Stations of the Cross every Friday at 6PM during Lent (February 16-March 29, 2024).

The Stations of the Cross is a devotional practice that commemorates the events leading up to Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and death. The devotion consists of 14 stations or moments along the path Jesus took from his condemnation by Pontius Pilate to his burial in the tomb. Each station typically involves a prayer, meditation, or reflection on the suffering and sacrifice of Jesus, often accompanied by images or other art representing the event.

The Stations of the Cross is typically observed during the season of Lent, especially on Fridays, and culminates on Good Friday, where the passion of Christ is remembered and celebrated. This devotion is considered a way for Christians to deepen their faith and understanding of the sacrifice of Jesus, and to unite their own sufferings and struggles with his, ultimately leading to a greater appreciation for the resurrection and the hope of eternal life.

Lent Begins with Two Ash Wednesday Services Wednesday, February 14, 2024

Christ the King Church invites you to enter into a Holy Lent beginning Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2024. We will have two Ash Wednesday services, one at 12PM and one at 6PM. Both services will include Communion and the Imposition of Ashes.

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the season of Lent: a time of repentance, fasting, and prayer, in preparation for the great feast of the resurrection. Because it is the beginning of a penitential season, there will be no music in either service. The services will last about an hour.

The season of Lent began in the early days of the Church as a time of preparation for those seeking to be baptized at the Easter Vigil. The forty days refer to our Lord’s time of fasting in the wilderness; and since Sundays are never fast days, Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the Lenten Fast. Read More

What is Lent?

Lent is a forty-day (excluding Sundays) period of fasting, repentance and spiritual discipline in the Christian calendar, observed by many denominations including the Anglican Church. The word Lent derives from lencten, an Old English term meaning spring.

The origins of Lent can be traced back to the early Christian Church. In the early centuries, Lent was primarily observed as a period of preparation for baptism. Catechumens, or those who were preparing for baptism, would undergo a period of instruction and formation in the Christian faith, culminating in their baptism at the Easter Vigil.

Over time, the observance of Lent expanded beyond just preparation for baptism. It became a season of repentance and spiritual discipline for all Christians, not just catechumens. The length of Lent has varied throughout history. In some Christian traditions, it was observed for only a few days, while in others, it lasted for several weeks. It wasn’t until the Council of Nicea in 325 AD that the duration of Lent was standardized at forty days, to reflect the forty days that Jesus spent in the wilderness before beginning his public ministry.

Christ the King Church will be hosting a Pancake Dinner in honor of Shrove Tuesday on Tuesday, February 13, 2024 from 5PM-6:30PM in the Fellowship Hall.

Shrove Tuesday, also known as Pancake Day or Fat Tuesday, is observed on the day before Ash Wednesday. It is the last day of feasting before the start of Lent. In the Bible, the forty days of Lent symbolize the forty days Jesus spent fasting in the desert. During this time, Christians are encouraged to fast, repent, and prepare for Easter.

The name Shrove comes from the Old English word shrive, which means to confess or to receive absolution. In the past, Christians would confess their sins to a priest and receive absolution before the start of Lent. Pancakes were a way to use up rich ingredients like eggs, butter, and sugar before the fasting period began. The tradition of eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday has continued to this day in many countries around the world.
