We invite you to commemorate Episcopal Relief & Development Sunday on the first Sunday in Lent, March 5, 2017, or another convenient date during the Lenten season.

To help your congregation prepare for this special Sunday and for the Lenten journey, we encourage you to order the 2017 Lenten Meditations guide. Available in English and Spanish, this year’s devotional focuses on creating economic opportunities and strengthening communities, with a particular focus on empowering women. The daily readings are co-authored by a group of leaders from across the Anglican Communion, who bring a range of perspectives as they reflect on Scripture and other sources of spiritual wisdom. 

The devotionals are available in English and Spanish from Episcopal Media Center (EMC). Additional Lenten resources are also available (see below). All materials are free; a minimal fee will be charged for shipping and handling. Large orders or overnight and second-day delivery will incur additional shipping costs.

To place orders, call EMC toll free at 1.866.937.2772, visit the online Episcopal Marketplace or click on the resources below. Materials must be ordered by February 15th to ensure they will arrive in time for Ash Wednesday, March 1, 2017.
