Lenten Reflections-Praying Together as a Parish!

Lenten Reflections from the works of Henri J.M. Nouwen


Few writers have been able to capture the pure pastoral sensitivity that is the gift of Henri Nouwen. In Called to Life, Called to Love, Nouwen does not disappoint. 

He takes us on a Lenten journey from Jerusalem to the foot of the Cross, helping us understand and discover the deeper meaning of Christian love. This booklet is a must for all those seeking a more meaningful Lent. 

Copies of these are available at the back of the church. Pick one up so we can pray and study together as a parish!

Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper

All are invited to join us this Tuesday, February 12, 5:00-7:00 p.m., for our Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper, hosted by The Mothers' Union. Enjoy a feast of pancakes, sausages, fresh fruit and refreshments.

If you wish, you may leave a free-will offering which will be donated to the Northern Clergy Families Fund.

This fund was started in 1974 to help isolated clergy spouses serving in the Northern Dioceses. the recipients are very grateful; there are many hardships experienced living in the North, often in isolated areas, as they endure extreme weather conditions, the high cost of living, and other factors.
