To Bless the Space Between Us: A Lenten Journey of Transition
For three (3) Wednesdays in Lent, we will be gathering together for a shared meal followed by Compline and sacred reading practices around the theme of transition. Pastor Kate will lead this reflection, drawing on the writings of John O'Donohue, to bring together the connected themes of Endings, Thresholds, and Beginnings in our lives, our community, and our Lenten journey.

 
 

INQUIRERS’ CLASS

 
9:00 AM – 2:00 PM, Saturday March 9th
Sign up on the bulletin board or by calling the church office. Deepen your knowledge of your faith, religion and the Episcopal Church. There will be one session taught by Pastor Alanna on Saturday March 9th, from 9 am – 2 pm.   The class is considered adequate preparation for anyone desiring to be confirmed or received in the Episcopal Church when the Bishop comes for Confirmation on May 12, 2019.
 
Commit yourself to experiencing a meaningful Lent
by taking advantage of these programs and
worship services of our church.
 
A Lenten discipline of both self-sacrifice
and mindful action can help us
better understand and participate in
Christ’s death and resurrection.
