Lent 2015
Ash Wednesday is quickly approaching on February 18th. During the services on Ash, the clergy bid the people to prepare for the passion and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ by the “observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.”To that end, we offer several ways in which you can observe a holy Lent.
Lenten Devotional Packets
These are custom designed for families and for individuals and couples.Please pick up your  packet in the Narthex.Within it, you will find helpful information, a book of meditations, and a coin collector - the proceeds of which will be given to Episcopal Relief and Development.
Lenten Study
This year, we will be studying the Gospel of John together as a congregation.There will be a daily reading assignment, which everyone can follow. In addition, once a week, we ask that you  participate in a small group study focused on six of the people Jesus encounters in the Gospel of John.You will learn more about the person, the passage, and what Jesus might be trying to communicate to us today.The meeting will be held on different days, at different times, throughout the week in an effort to accommodate busy schedules.Hopefully, one of these groups will be convenient for you.Sign up sheets are located in the Narthex.
The Sacrament of Reconciliation
Reconciliation is available by appointment with Mother Catherine.It is not required, but it can be quite helpful for those who feel heavily burdened by sin, and would like to be absolved and  reconciled to Christ.

Stations of the Cross
Everyone is welcome to come and walk the Stations of the Cross in the church
