Stations of the Cross
Fridays at 5 p.m. in the Church
Stations of the Cross is a devotional practice recalling the final hours or Passion of Jesus. During Lent we display on the church walls a series of images or “stations” recalling events during the Passion. Participants walk from station to station with prayers and words of reflection. Walk with us on Fridays in Lent at 5 p.m. Booklets are available daily for private walking during Lent whenever the church is open. Albert Gray and Mary Miller facilitate the prayers. Evening Prayer will follow at 5:30 p.m. during Lent.
Evensong and Soup Suppers
Sundays at 5:30 p.m. in the Church and Parish Hall
Hymns and chants in a choral setting of the Evening Office will take place on Sundays in Lent at 5:30 p.m., followed by Soup & Salad & Teaching in the Parish Hall. Bring salad or bread if you can. If you’d like to prepare soup as part of your Lenten discipline, contact Laura Wilkins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Five Marks of Love
Sundays at 10 a.m. and after Evensong in the Parish Hall
Again this year we will enjoy a Lenten exploration led by the Brothers of SSJE, the Society of St. John the Evangelist. The six-week series will focus on ways in which the Divine Life is expressed in and through us. Each week we will explore the Anglican Marks of Mission: Tell, Teach, Tend, Transform, Treasure. Join our sessions Sunday mornings in Lent at 10 a.m. in the Parish Hall (except on March 5) and after Sunday Evensong during Soup & Salad. Please go online and subscribe to daily reflections and videos from the Brothers via email atssje.org/ssje/5marksoflove. You may also download a PDF workbook. The reflections start Sunday, February 26, the Sunday before Ash Wednesday.
Mondays at 6 p.m. in the Parish Hall
Ancient Roots, a service of chant, silence, and a sacred meal, takes place on Mondays in Lent at 6 p.m. in the Parish Hall. The Gregorian Schola of St. Joseph Catholic Church performs selections of traditional Gregorian chant. We also participate in simple chants from the Taize community in France. Listening to a sentence of sacred scripture, we enter into a “Quaker Silence,” and we end with the Breaking of Bread and sharing of Wine in a Eucharistic circle. Nursery is provided.
