A Ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Fort Worth
Camp Crucis is a center of excellence created to assist men, women, and children in deepening their personal relationship with Christ in a peaceful setting for ministry, education and spiritual growth.
Caritas of Waco is looking for 4-5 volunteers to help load cars with food in their drive-through service at the 300 South 15th St. location. They only load trunks and truck beds, so volunteers do not have contact with the clients.

The volunteers would need to wear masks and closed-toe shoes. Anyone interested can contact Andrew Bryngelson by email at or by phone at 254-753-4593 ext. 203.

Exploring Prayer with C.S. Lewis
Taught by Toby Coley
Have you ever wrestled with the purpose and practice of prayer? Why we pray when God already knows what we need? Does prayer have any effect? How do we pray? C.S. Lewis likely wrote more about prayer than any other topic. This fall, we will join Lewis in his debate about prayer through his last published text, "Letters to Malcolm: Chiefly on Prayer." In these letters to a fictional friend, Lewis explores his most developed understanding of prayer, drawing on vast reading in the Christian Tradition, Anglican Formularies, and his personal practice of prayer. In addition, we will look at some of Lewis' comments on prayer in his essays and letters.
Join us this fall, outside in the vacant field at 9:45 am as we look at this central act commanded of all believers through one of our own great Anglican thinkers.
