St Clements Church Toronto
Lent at St. Clement’s
Lent is a season of walking into the wild. Beginning with Ash Wednesday, it’s a time of journeying and reflection as we take a risk and follow Jesus into the wilderness and toward the cross. Throughout the forty days of Lent, we set aside time to look at ourselves and the world around us with boldness, asking questions and exploring what we discover, as we seek to draw closer to God.
To help guide us through this journey, we invite you to participate in our Lenten devotional, Into the Wild. This devotional draws on the life and work of Henri Matisse, one of the most daring, influential, and beloved artists in modern history. From his childhood growing up in a small town in France to what he called his “masterpiece,” the Chapel of the Rosary in Vence, Matisse explored faith and wilderness throughout his life.
Through scripture, story, art and activity, this devotional creatively calls us into the wild in varied and intriguing ways, whether we’re five or 95! You can download a digital copy of Into the Wild here, scan the QR code on the poster, or pick up a printed copy on the Welcome Hub.
