A holy fast now envelops us, calling us to pause and reflect. Lent is a penitential season of forty days and nights (excluding Sundays) when we are asked to tuck away our exuberant “Alleluia” cries so that we might search for a deeper meaning of Christ’s time here on earth. 

  • Lenten Meditations from Episcopal Relief and Development inform our conversations in Adult Forum through April 7.
  • Wednesday Soup Suppers and Contemplative Prayer continue through April 17.

ALL ARE WELCOME

Love is expansive, inclusive and knows no bounds—whether it be race, color, gender, gender expression, age, ancestry, disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, or if you are searching, seeking, or somewhere in between. We invite you to join us on a journey of discovery as we seek to love and serve God, each other, and all creation.
