Did you know ? (Sunday, March 27, 2022)

Today, the Fourth Sunday in Lent, goes by several other names, including Laetre Sunday, mothering Sunday and Refreshment Sunday. Traditionally, it was also a time when people would visit the mother church of the diocese or the church where they received the sacrament of Baptism. The day is exactly twenty-one days before Easter or midway into the Lenten season. As such, the day allows for a break from normal Lenten practices. The Collect for the day was written in 1952 by F. B. McNutt. It reflects the mothering or refreshment customs that surround the day.
