Marking the Season of Lent
In the season of Lent, running roughly 40 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter, we are invited to a “holy observance…by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting, and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God’s holy Word.” (Book of Common Prayer, 265) We also believe adding more to our lives to focus our hearts on God’s love for all is a worthy spiritual practice. Here you can find resources to help you more fully participate in this time of preparation and reflection.
Women in the Spirit Retreat: April 28-30
- Do you yearn for a relaxing, quiet weekend to renew your spirit?
- Wonder how God is working in your life?
- Cherish intentional time away from the “day-to-day” routines?
- Value taking care of yourself, giving yourself space to rest?
- Seek to draw closer to God?
We each have different times of transition during our lives. The weekend will be less about “teachings” and more about “conversations” as together we explore how God can speak to us through faithful women from the past as well as those around us now. Deadline to register is April 10. Complete details here. You may also register online.

Pray for our Nation
“O Lord, whose glory is in all the world: We commend this nation to your merciful care, that, being guided by your Providence, we may dwell secure in your peace. Grant to the President of the United States, the Governor of this State, and to all in authority, wisdom and strength to know and to do your will. Fill them with the love of truth and righteousness, and make them ever mindful of their calling to serve this people in your fear; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.” (Book of Common Prayer p. 820) Read more
