This Lenten Season, you are invited to continue your journey of faith through the wilderness where you may be tempted to lose sight of God’s presence. Join us in finding a way, a truth, and a life that gives glory to God and reveals to us our own calling and belovedness as children of God.

On each Sunday during Lent, we explore the mystery of God’s grace and discover how we can be grounded in our identities as siblings of Jesus Christ. In addition to Sundays, several midweek opportunities are also offered to help each of us deepen our faith.

Join us for a personal and collective journey to Jerusalem.

Wednesdays: March 6, March 20, Supper & Contemplative Worship, 6-7pm
Our lives are busy with many distractions. Consider joining together for a simple meal at 6:00pm
followed by a contemplative service in the Sanctuary at 6:30pm. In the time of introspective worship, step aside from the world’s diversions to pause, pray, sing, and practice moments of silence while we seek God’s presence within us.

Sunday, March 24, Wilderness Retreat, 1-4pm in the Chapel
Through Scriptural stories, poetry, music and visual art, led by Sally Wile and Mary Ann Breisch, explore how the journey to Jerusalem inevitably finds us in the wilderness. In that barrenness, reflect on how God is revealed and we are transformed.

Maundy Thursday, March 28, 6-8pm
Supper at 6:00pm followed by a service of worship in the sanctuary to prepare for the crucifixion of Jesus. Passages from the gospels remind us of the final meal with his disciples, his agony in the garden, and his trials before he sacrificed his life on the cross. After each reading, the lights will dim until the Christ Candle is removed from the sanctuary.

Good Friday, March 29, Community Service at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 2747 Fairmount Blvd., Cleveland Heights, Ohio, Noon-3pm
Join other Christians from our community in a service of remembrance at St. Paul’s Church. The program includes brief homilies on The Seven Last Words of Christ, an oratory sung by the St. Paul’s choir, prayers, and hymns.  Attendees may come and go as their schedules permit.

Thanks to Jennifer Blakeney, Mary Ann Breisch, Leslie Clement,
