Lent At York Minster

For the Right Reverend Dr Jonathan Frost, Dean of York, the Lent and Easter story raises many intriguing questions about faith, belief and hope.  He said:  “Every year Christians enter into the dramatic narrative of Lent, Holy Week and Easter. We journey with Jesus to the cross and rejoice in his glorious resurrection. From entering into this story we can find hope in times of despair, light in times of darkness and confidence in the power of love to overcome all things.

They are holding a number of special service including Silence in the Minster every Thursdays during Lent  from 7.00-9.00pm. Each evening a member of the Cathedral clergy will give a short talk on how to use silence, drawing on the deep well of teaching, resources and experience in the Christian contemplative tradition, before leading periods of silent meditation. 

Also 14 dramatic and stunning artworks by renowned York based artist Jerry Scott once again mark the Stations of the Cross in the Minster.  The stations echo Jesus’s journey to his crucifixion and the 14 stages along the way. The walk around the Minster will include opportunities for reflection, hymns and prayers.

Premier’s Northern Correspondent Ian Britton met up with The Right Reverend Dr Jonathan Frost, the Dean of York to talk a little more about Lent.
