ASH WEDNESDAY,  (February 14th)

Let us begin Lent with the sign of ashes symbolizing our
repentance and vulnerability.

10:30 a.m....... Holy Communion
7:00 p.m.......... Special Ecumenical Eucharist @ St. Mark’s

Check our our Lent Study series in the purple leaflet.

Looking forward to Lent….

Our Lent course will be a little different this year.  Our Bishop, Melissa Skelton, wants us to use a booklet of “Offering and Reflection” prepared by the Brothers of the Society of St. John the Evangelist.  It is based on the Gospel of John, and provides a wonderful way of engaging with the God “whose self-definition is love and who sent His son so that we may experience life in its fullness”.

For each participant there is a daily journal, which is a helpful and practical way of making the scriptures your own.  We will then get together as a group for four sessions to share our thoughts as well as studying the background and theological themes of John’s Gospel.

See the Rector to obtain your journal ($5.00) and pick up the purple leaflet at the back of church for details of the plenary sessions.

Lent Study Series I
Wednesday Feb. 21 at 7:30 p.m.
(repeated Friday Feb. 23 at 2:00 p.m.)

Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John

Our Lent Study Series begins this week at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, 21st February (repeated at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, 23rd February). We will check in about how we are using the booklets and share our experience, if we are comfortable.  We will also discover something of the history of the Society of St. John the Evangelist, and learn about the background of the Fourth Gospel.  Join us!

 

Lent Study Series II
Wednesday Feb. 28 at 7:30 p.m.
(repeated Friday March 2 at 2:00 p.m.)

Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John

Our Lenten course this week continues with the “I Am” statements.  Jesus used seven vivid and colourful metaphors to help His followers understand the nature of His identity and purpose.  Come along on Wed. 28th February at 7:30 p.m. (or on Fri. 2nd March at 2:00 p.m.) and let us engage with them.

 

Lent Study Series III
Wednesday March 7 at 7:30 p.m.
(repeated Friday Mar. 9 at 2:00 p.m.)

“You Have No Bucket”

We hope the title of this week’s session of our Lent course intrigues you.  It is part of a fascinating conversation that Jesus has with a Samaritan woman beside Jacob’s well.  It is only recorded in John’s Gospel (4:4 -42).  Come and join us at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday 7th March (or 2:00 p.m. on Friday 9th March). Bring along your bible and your thinking cap!
