Christian Formation for Lent and Easter

We encourage you to consider the following offerings if you are looking for ways to engage spiritually during the Lenten and Easter season:

Artful Contemplation: Praying Lent through the Lens of Art
Join Deacon Laurie for this 3-week series that explores the themes of Lent in the context of sacred art and its associated scriptures. Participants will experience the contemplative practices of Lectio Divina (Divine Reading), Visio Divina (Divine Seeing) and contemplative prayer. Questions for personal reflection and prayer will be offered to use in the weeks in between.
This series takes place on the Zoom platform on the first 3 Mondays in Lent: 2/22, 3/1 and 3/8 from 7:00-8:30 PM.
To participate please email Deacon Laurie at travelaurie@hotmail.com to receive the Zoom link.

Praying with the Gospel of John-The Society of St. John the Evangelist
This eight-week online retreat and course of study is led by and sponsored by the Society of St. John the Evangelist, and will provide an overview of the Gospel of John and introduce participants to its major themes.
The study begins on Tuesday, February 9 and runs through April 6th (does not meet on March 9) and takes place on Tuesdays from 7:30 to 8:15 p.m.
“The Fourth Gospel is at the heart of the “Johannine spirituality” lived by the Brothers of the Society of St John the Evangelist. It is a spirituality of love and intimacy, of abiding in Jesus and in the Father, of laying down of one’s life in service of others, of being sent into the world to reveal God ‘s love to those who don’t yet know it, and of witnessing to what we have seen and heard so that others may find the joy and love that God so wants to give them.”
