Cathedral Life | Spring 2022

We publish this edition of Cathedral Life just as we are about to enter Lent. The name itself comes from an old Anglo-Saxon word, ‘lencten” or lengthen, and a word for spring, since the days lengthen throughout the season and the Season of Lent moves towards Holy week and the brightness of Easter.

Every year, as Winter ends and Spring begins, I work with a gardener to clear out the dead leaves and trim the branches in our garden at Clergy House to prepare for the new growth about to emerge. Lent provides us the chance to work with Jesus, the gardener of our souls, to clear the old growth from our hearts and to make room for new life and renewal.
