PARISH LENTEN RETREAT – Friday, March 29th from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. in the church - As we journey through Lent remember that this time of preparation is leading to the joy of the Resurrection! All members of the parish are invited to a Lenten Retreat where we will experience the story of Lazarus as it is illuminated in the Saint John's Bible, using the prayer method "Seeing the Word". This way of praying involves periods of silence, reading Scripture while focused on the illumination and optional sharing with the group. Join us on Friday, March 29th, beginning with Stations of the Cross lead by the C.W.L. at 6:30 p.m. in the church. The evening will end with refreshments. There is no cost. Materials will be provided. Sign-up sheets are in the Narthex.
