Join Us for Ash Wednesday and Lent

Join Us for Ash Wednesday and Lent

A season of prayer, repentance, and reflection, the season of Lent offers many opportunities for spiritual renewal. Join us!

Wednesday Night Lenten Series

Pastor Carrie will host an online-only series on “Henri Matisse and the Colors of Lent.” Join us on Zoom on Wednesdays at 7:30 pm!


University Lutheran Church is participating in the ELCA World Hunger Fundraising Challenge from Lent to Pentecost, February 22 to May 28, 2023. The first $100,000 in gifts from congregations in the New England Synod will be matched through a matching grant.

Currently, global hunger is at unprecedented levels, the largest in modern history. The war in Ukraine resulting in a lack of wheat for the world; the most severe drought in Africa in 40 years; the economic consequences of COVID-19; climate change; and high inflation all are creating challenges facing hungry people now.

ELCA World Hunger works through congregations, global companion churches and partners in over 60 countries such as Lutheran World Federation, Lutheran World Relief and Church World Service. ELCA World Hunger provides not only immediate relief but also sustainable development projects to address hunger at the root causes.

Where to send financial offerings? Please make financial contributions via the Giving page of the UniLu website (with “ELCA World Hunger” in the “Other Gift, specify” line) or via check to University Lutheran Church (with “ELCA World Hunger” in the memo line), mailed to the church office or placed in the offering basket.

UniLu’s contributions will be pooled with those from other New England Synod congregations and matched up to a total of $100,000.
