Lenten Opportunities

We have several opportunities for you to express your devotion to our Lord and grow your spiritual life during the season of Lent. While we often speak of “giving up” something for Lent, sometimes it can also be helpful to add something for Lent. Any of the following would be a meaningful addition to your Lenten discipline:

Picnic in the Pews on Thursdays at noon provides a mid-week opportunity to participate in the Holy Eucharist and afterwards enjoy the fellowship of others with the light lunch.  If your schedule permits you can “picnic in the pews”, or we will gladly put your lunch in a sack that you can take with you.

Wednesday Holy Eucharist at 5:30 p.m.

Evening Prayer on Monday and Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. 

Sunday School Class on The 5 Marks of Love at 9:15 a.m.

Please pick up a Hope Chest box to be filled with money for Episcopal Relief & Development at the back of the church.

Finally, you are welcome to meet with me to make your personal confession. The order for personal confession is call “Reconciliation of a Penitent and can be found in the Book of Common Prayer on page 447. Of course, your confession will be kept in the strictest confidence.

Blessings, Fr. Ray +
