Lent is Beginning

Imposition of Ashes on

Sunday, February 21

  

For those who were unable to attend the Ash Wednesday Service on Feb. 17th, the imposition of ashes will be available on Sunday, Feb. 21st during all three services. Parishioners are encouraged to pray the Litany available here or on page 91 of the 2019 BCP.

During each service, parishioners will have the opportunity to receive the imposition of ashes. The normative practice is to have ashes placed on the forehead in the shape of a cross. While we do not believe that there is a significant risk in this method, there will be the option for those concerned about contact to have ashes sprinkled onto the head.

Spring Catechesis-3.png

C.S. Lewis Catechesis Class

Class begins on January 17


 

“To love at all is to be vulnerable.”—The Four Loves

“I ended my first book with the words no answer. I know now, Lord, why you utter no answer. You are yourself the answer. Before your face questions die away. What other answer would suffice? Only words, words; to be led out to battle against other words. Long did I hate you, long did I fear you.” —Till We Have Faces

C.S. Lewis’s book exploring four natural human loves is a modern classic beloved by many. His lucid prose and insightful examples reward readers time and again. Yet, while being immensely practical, this work also challenges readers. Join us next year when catechesis resumes (on January 17th) as we unpack The Four Loves together—a journey through what Lewis calls “the whole Christian life in one particular relation.” But we won’t stop there!  After Lewis’s explanations, he provides a masterful fiction—often acclaimed his best work—that embodies the ideas found in the The Four Loves. That work is Till We Have Faces: A Myth Retold. We’ll follow the protagonist, Orual, as she seeks to overcome the challenges of living in and ruling a tiny barbaric kingdom on the edge of greater kingdoms, ever seeking to find her identity surrounded by competing systems of belief. You may well ask, “what’s love got to do with it?”  That’s what we’ll uncover through catechesis this Spring, the core virtue of the Christian life, that which St. John tells us God is: love.
