During the season of Lent, we will be offering the devotion “The Way of the Cross”, also known as the “Stations of the Cross.”  This devotion is an adaption to local usage of a custom widely observed by pilgrims to Jerusalem: the offering of prayer at a series of places in that city traditionally associated with our Lord’s passion and death. The Way of the Cross, depicted as icons around our Sanctuary, are based on inferences from the Gospel account or from pious legend. This beautiful devotion will be on Fridays during Lent at 1:00 pm. Please join us on the journey of our Lord.

In preparation for Easter, a Spring Work Day is planned for Saturday, April 1st. Please mark your calendar!
