Lent Study Guide

Available online, PDF, and/or app

Trinity Institute 2017 will coincide with the second week of Lent. In order to enhance that vital season of prayer, study, and repentance, members of the Anglican Communion Environmental Network have created a Lent Study Guide. The guide is available for individuals and groups on the web, in a PDF, and as an app for smartphones and tablets in English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.

The study guide PDF is available to download below:

Each week includes a contextual meditation, scripture, a prayer, and online resources. The Rev. Jeff Golliher, the Anglican Communion’s environmental representative at the United Nations, is editing the guide. The writers are:

  • Michael Schut, The Episcopal Church in the United States;
