These are unusual times as our nation confronts a deadly pandemic, a troubled economy, racial injustice, and a bitter election season. It’s a lot to take in, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed.

That’s why prayer is needed now more than ever.

Welcome to Lent Madness 2021! In the midst of a most unusual year; everyone's favorite socially distanced online Lenten devotion continues anew.

This year's lineup of saintly souls features thirty-two inspiring women and men, both known and unknown, along with a plethora of themed battles, some of which are obvious and some of which will soon be revealed. These particular saints have been hand-selected by the Supreme Executive Committee, following much discernment and based on nominations from the global Lent Madness public.

Like us, these faithful folks have not always had an easy path to walk. They were products of their time in history and never claimed to be perfect. But what binds them together; besides this year's bracket, is a strong faith in Jesus Christ and a willingness to serve him amid the circumstances of their own day.

And , while they have all received their crown of righteousness, only one of these saints will emerge with the coveted 2021 Golden Halo. Along the way, we'll learn from them and be inspired by them and see Jesus a bit more clearly through them.

We hope you enjoy this year's edition of the Saintly Scorecard, your companion guide to the exciting saintly action that will take place at lentmadness.org starting on Ash Thursday, February 18.


May this little online devotion bring you inspiration, hope, joy, and spiritual nourishment during this holy season. We look forward to sharing this journey with each one of you.


Yours in Lent,

The Rev. Tim Schenck                        The Rev. Canon Scott Gunn

Rector                                                   Executive Director

Dedicating and blessing the labyrinth.

Ascension Labyrinth, Outdoor Chapel
and the Spiritual Journey


At its most basic level the labyrinth is a metaphor for the journey of life. Joyous or somber, thoughtful or prayerful, a walking meditation.

  • Church of the Ascension has installed an eight circuit Chartres Labyrinth

  • There is a five foot diameter perimeter in which dedicated, engraved paver bricks can be placed.

  • Our Community – Ascension – Seneca – Oconee County – Upstate SC – EVERYONE is invited to walk the Labyrinth - ANYTIME 

Welcome to a spiritual respite
