We will use the ancient prayer practices of Lectio Divina and The Stations of the Cross to enter into the story from different perspectives. Please read Luke 22:14-23:56 to prepare for our study together. We will begin the five-week series on March 13 at 5:30 p.m. with Evening Prayer and the Eucharist. We will then eat dinner in the parish hall and hold our discussion and activities until no later than 7:45 p.m.

*Good Friday, and other weekdays in Lent and Holy Week are traditionally “observed by special acts of discipline and self-denial” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 17). The details of these devotions are left to the individual’s conscience. We recommend consulting a spiritual director and/or a wise and thoughtful priest in crafting your Lenten discipline.
