Three new Lenten offerings for the MWF “Practicing Prayerful Presence” Small Groups

By February 12, 2021Lent, Pray

Mardi Gras will be this next Tuesday, and the Season of Lent begins the next day! The kinds of difficulties and depth of pain we’ve experienced since this time last year were unimaginable. The theme for Lent this year is “Darkest Before the Dawn”. And it calls to us in deepening ways that we could not have imagined last year. Starting on Ash Wednesday, we will have three weekly opportunities to join with others to “find our way through the darkness and into the new light of dawn .” Each group is open to everyone, and will meet from 9:30 – 10:30 am on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. You may attend any or all of the days each week. There will be a unique theme and focus that follows throughout Lent each Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

All groups will meet via Zoom.

Associate Pastor of Spiritual Formation


God of light and God of darkness,
God of conscience and God of courage
lead us through this time
of spiritual confusion and public uncertainty.

Give us the conscience it takes
to comprehend what we’re facing,
to see what we are looking at
and to say what we see
so that others, hearing us,
may also brave the pressure that comes
with being out of public step.

Give us the courage we need
to confront those things
that compromise our consciences
or threaten our integrity.

— Joan Chittister from “Prayer for Conscience and Courage”
