Lent 2022

 

A Lenten Book Companion 

     

During the season of Lent, Fr. Andrew invites the parish to read together the book, Hanging by a Thread: The Questions of the Cross, written by Samuel Wells, Vicar of the Parish of St. Martin in the Fields, London, and former Dean of the Duke University Chapel.  Wells invites us to go deeper into the mystery and paradox of the cross, setting aside easy conclusions and daring to sit in the discomfort of sin, brokenness, and death that Jesus’ crucifixion exposes.  In the discomfort, he suggests, we uncover the deep meaning that the cross offers our lives and our faith.

Copies of the book are available in the Parish Library for a suggested donation of $10.  The book is also available online for purchase or download.

There are three upcoming opportunities to gather and discuss the book either in-person (in the Barrett Room) or via Zoom:
 
Thursday, March 31 at 12:00PM
Friday, April 1 at 9:00AM
Tuesday, April 5 at 5:30PM.

The Sacrament of Reconciliation

The Reconciliation of Penitent, commonly called 'Confession', will be offered each Friday in Lent, from 11:30AM until 12:00PM in the St. Mary's Room (second floor, above the Parish Hall).  Reconciliation is also available at any time by appointment.  

Please contact Fr. Andrew if you’d like to make an appointment or to learn more about the rite of Reconciliation in the Episcopal Church.
