Trinity Church Welcomes All through its "Big Red Doors" with Tibetan prayer flags flying in the wind.

The word "Lent" originally meant "Springtime." Because the church season always fell at that time of year, the name came to apply to it as well. Even after the word "Lent" was no longer used for spring, it was still used by the church to describe the season before Easter.
The early church celebrated Lent only for a few days before Easter. Over the centuries, the length of the season grew until it was several weeks long. In the seventh century, the church set the period of Lent at forty days (excluding Sundays) in order to remind people of the duration of Jesus' temptation in the wilderness. Sunday is always a celebration of Jesus' victory over sin and death. Even during Lent, Sunday is "a little Easter."
