During Lent we offer an additional weekly study opportunity. Recent topics have been a course entitled “Meeting God in Mark” in 2015, and the Bible Study “Journeying with Luke” in 2016. The group usually meets at the church on Friday at 7.30 pm after the weekly Stations of the Cross devotional service.

In 2017 our weekly Lenten course is entitled “The Seeds of Heaven: Reading the Gospel of Matthew”.  We will look at key themes in Matthew’s Gospel on four Fridays (from March 10 – 31) at 7.30 pm. Here is an overview of the schedule and of the readings – if you want to prepare (which is not absolutely necessary).

As a personal Lenten discipline, we encourage you to sign up for the Lenten program: “5 Marks of Love” designed by the Brothers of the Episcopal Society of St. John the Evangelist – in partnership with the Virginia Theological Seminary. This program will help each of us to explore the 5 Anglican Marks of Mission (“Tell, Teach, Tend, Transform and Treasure”), as we engage with the ways that God´s love expresses itself in and through us. To take part, all you have to do is to subscribe now to the free daily video email at this page:  http://ssje.org/ssje/5marksoflove/ .  While you are at that website, you can also download the free workbook for “5 Marks of Love”.  On your own schedule, you can watch these videos and meditate on their reflection questions.
